The Ukranian artist makes use of sand, seashells, quartz and even tree bark to create these whimsical mosaics. From afar, the portraits look as if they were painted by hand but upon closer inspection, you can see the tiny natural materials used.

In fact, she has created each by hand and did not use any other color other what is found in the natural environment. With a keen eye for color, the portraits display her incredible talent as each tiny material she uses is perfectly placed in the right areas.

The artists sand shell mosaic artwork, which has been displayed in various art galleries worldwide is a fine example of what can be done when blending creativity and natural elements into one.
