Artists that find inspiration in nature have a never ending opportunity to bring the outside in. Nature has a certain way that it casts a magic spell over us. A walk in nature, you can hear the rustle of leaves, the lapping of the ocean or a sunrise or sunset filled with vibrant hues.
As the urban sprawl continues and medium to high density living increases, there is less and less opportunity to experience nature regularly. Art is a way to bridge the gap between the great outdoors and the limited space indoors.
Mother Nature offers endless inspiration from mountain peeks, rivers and beaches to the tiniest of petals on intricate flowers and everything in between.
Art can be a conduit to the connection between nature and indoors, creating a certain ambiance melded with your own personal decorative elements.
Imagine waking to a beautiful bouquet of flowers on your side table with water you never have to change, or a sunset that never sets on your wall. You can have it all with art in your home.
