The Power of Joy Through Art Rooted In Nature

Art Rooted in Nature

The beauty in nature inspired me and I wanted to share that joy with others. I painted these images using acrylic paints on canvas, or coloured pencils on a paper illustration board. I did it to bring the nature closer to you.

I gave myself the permission to explore my natural world around me and to present the result on my internet pages. Here are my works based on natural life painted for you to bring it closer to you, and to show you the importance of relaxation and tranquility brought to you by nature.

We live in an urban environment where we rarely see trees, flowers, grass, or other natural elements. But there’s something special about being outside, especially when you’re in nature. It helps us feel better physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

We Often Fail to Notice the Beauty and Significance of Nature!


This is also because our inner voices are frequently silenced.

The world we are living in is a very loud and often harsh place.

We’re often occupied, deeply engaged with urgent things to do, and seldom have time for simply pleasures in life.

At what time do we give ourselves permission to tune out all the hubbub? When do we urge ourselves to trust our instincts, to investigate and find what we’re attracted to?

When do we summon the bravery to divert our focus and relax in front of a serene landscape? If not in the real world, an artwork in front of us, on our walls, can do the same thing.

That’s where nature helps!

How Can You Bring Nature Into Your Home?

Allow yourself to go on an adventure! Be free and follow your passion in nature and art! Be curious and discover new worlds around you!

Have on your walls art inspired by nature and surround yourself with indoor plants.

If you live in an urban area, there are plenty of opportunities to bring nature into your home. Start small by planting a few flowers or trees in pots. Then, as your garden grows, add more plants and shrubs. Eventually, you will have a beautiful outdoor space where you can enjoy fresh air and greenery.

Here Are Some Questions Asked by Fans of My Art:

How Can You Create Paintings Rooted in Nature?

I have been an extraordinarily lucky person and I have enough energy to notice, embrace, and to create artworks connected with nature and all the beautiful things I am able to see. I followed my curiosity to find the right objects to paint or draw, and I did it with excitement.

And excitement is catching!

Because of that, my artworks are very popular.

To create my series of paintings, I used acrylic paint on canvas. I started out painting small canvases and then moved up to larger ones. I painted each piece individually and then added them together to make this collection.
