Whether using leaves, butterflies or gorgeous flower petals as her medium, artist Michelle McKinney creates spectacular suspended installations that pay homage to the beauty of nature.

The UK-based artist's pieces entitled "money plant", "honesty" and "silver dollars" are delicate and not heavy looking despite of being constructed out of countless smaller elements.

With ultra-fine woven metals as her medium of choice, Michelle McKinney mimics fallen leaves, pink flower petals and iridescent butterfly wings that are incredibly lifelike and pristine. Reminding one of the autumn's changing colors, these stunning art installations are wall hung in various clusters. The sculptural creations are both decorative and multi-dimensional, showcasing 3D forms that cast a delicate set of shadows upon their backdrop.
