Papaver rhoeas


A page from my nature journal. I love these red poppies! They are colourful and give me a warm feeling of summer. The sky has been filled with thunderstorms lately and it smells like summer.

Interview: Wings Worms and Wonders

I am incredibly happy to announce that I was asked to do a little interview for the lovely Kelly Johnson. If you are interested you can read it here

Also be sure to check out the rest of Kelly's website that revolves a lot around nature journaling and working with and in nature.


Inspiration


So many things have happened in the past few weeks and I am completely mesmerised by the beauty of the world as well as life itself. I went camping, painted a daffodil, listened to the birds sing, invited friends over for a garden party, went for many walks in the forest and painted till deep in the night. I am excited to show you my progress of paintings I have been working on and want to apologise for the lack of content on this blog. I want to post more of my art and will try to do so from now on. I hope you enjoy the video of my dear friend Michelle and me painting a dandelion.

Spring moments






Spring is so very wonderful. When the sun shines it is such a joy to sit outside and enjoy the warmth. Birds sing so much more during spring and everything seems to wake up from a deep sleep. I spent a lot of time in the gardens and illustrated the beautiful wood anemone because I think it is wonderfully delicate and gorgeous.
