About Myself and My Pressed Flower Art

Artist statement:

“Nature provides inspiration as well as materials for my art. I love pressed flower art because it preserves the best from the nature and it allows me to freely express my feelings toward love, life, and world. Pressed flower art preserves memories in life and brings peace and calm in my life. I think this peaceful and loving feeling reflects in my art. My art is about my hometown, places I travel, my fantasies, and of course my flowers.”
