"Let us a little permit Nature to take her own way;
she better understands her own affairs than we."
- Michel De Montaigne

Nature is my inspiration, above anything else. I have always loved the natural world, the colors of flowers, sky, animals, rocks, and all else. Patterns, designs, textures, all these things I look at and admire. I love the chaos of it all, the variety, the ever changing visuals, sounds, smells, textures, tastes. Mother Nature is, to me, the ultimate artist.
