Nature-Made Artwork

This Artist Creates Intricate Portraits Out of Flowers

— June 28, 2016 — Art & Design
These nature-made portraits are the artist's way of paying respects to "Mother Nature."

The natural and spiritually inspired artwork is both intricate and vibrant, with the artist using elements such as succulents, flowers, twigs, sand and grains to create the work. The artist puts together extremely creative pieces, with one portrait made up of burnt leaves and another that comes together to look like the esteemed Frieda Kahlo. Each portrait is unique and the artist forgoes the use of paint and glue to create portraits that are put together through "balance." This allows the artist to recycle or reuse the various components that make up the art. Once the portrait has been created, the artist photographs it and sells the prints online.

This botanical, nature-made art points out the limitless potential in the natural world and the beauty it has to offer.
