Painting with leaves

"Whoever loves and understands a garden will find contentment within" Chinese proverb

Abstract picture made with natural materials

My artworks celebrate nature and the environment. I created my abstract natural-pictures out of nothing but natural materials found in my garden or gathered in my walks - driftwood, stones, pine cones, (of course) scented  leaves, flowers, sticks, sand, seeds... you name it.
Abstract natural-picture

I'm trying  to lay down our ancestral roots in an eco-friendly way. When I'm working with materials, is to share the complexity of natural world: leaf and wood textures and shapes, rocks durability and to create images of water flows and wilderness.
Abstract picture with ginkgo leaves

I’m trying to understand, not a single isolated object but nature as a whole, recording on canvas vibrant landscape's spots of absolute beauty, to be seen by viewer in a new way. Hope you like my paintings with leaves!

"Nature is the art of God. The landscape belongs to the person who looks at it."  Ralph Waldo Emerson
