My name is Kovaleva Anastasia and I use found natural materials for my floral collages. They vary from feathers, paper, wood, and moss to egg shells, fish scales, and onion-skins. Nature is my major source of inspiration and I am constantly seeking new ways to challenge myself.

Art from nature unites natural elements with artistic vision for creating artwork that pushes the boundaries of what art is and how we perceive ourselves in nature. There is an unmistakable link between art and nature. Art is a process of discovering connections both, within us and in the outside world. Nature is the study of interactions among living beings and their environment. So both are really the study of relationships.

Speak to me about art and I will learn more about you. Nature is also like that. When you look deeply into the natural world you look deeply into yourself — when you describe nature, you describe yourself.
