Artist Creates Fantastical Illustrations And Miniature Sculptures

DafodilSeason_view1-62169a0a09c24__700

According to Michelle Petersen: “My miniature sculptures and illustrations are all inspired by my love for nature and fantasy. The sculptures are made with polymer clay and incorporate found materials from nature (stones, wood, acorns, shells), and my two-dimensional work is made with a combination of ink, watercolor and charcoal.

I try to show, through the lens of fantasy, every facet of nature that inspires me; from small and whimsical to majestic, mysterious and unsettling.”
