Erika Pochybova-Johnson's style of painting is overall a delight to look at. She emphasizes her subjects by creating kaleidoscopic patterns within them instead of merely coloring and shading them in. She also leaves the backgrounds monochromatic, creating stunning contrasts in all parts of her illustrations.

In these paintings, Pochybova-Johnson has drawn gorgeous tree roots flourishing outwards in the dirt from beneath a tree. The images are captivating because they encourage audiences to consider everyday scenarios in a wonderfully imaginative way, broadening your perspective on the beauty of trees.

The artist's work serves to illustrate the visual beauty that exists in the natural growth of such things as trees, using vibrantly designed patterns to emphasize elements of nature we don't normally get to see.
