Going Natural

All things are artificial, for nature is the art of God.
~ Thomas Browne
 
Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.
~ Vincent Van Gough
 

Most people know that the connection between nature and art is very strong. I think most artists go back to nature time and time again for inspiration. For most of us, being in nature is a destressor and very therapeutic. It is a way to “unplug” and see God’s hand in every small detail.

When traveling, I often pick up some small natural element as a memory of a place, whether it be a smooth, interesting looking stone, a feather, an intricate looking fern, or a deceased butterfly.

Lately, I have taken some of my collection and turned them into wearable works of art – jewelry.
