Mini Paintings On Wood Pieces From Fallen Branches

Seattle based artist Kimera Wachna paints stunning landscapes, animals and insects on natural wood slices from branches that have fallen or are damaged.

"Growing up surrounded by trees, I’ve found a deep affinity for the life force present in the natural world. For years I worked long monotonous hours in the city, in front of a computer, and felt like I was contradicting my very existence. So, five months ago, I decided to make a change."- via

Now she makes mini paintings and burns wood which creates an intimate experience between her and the nature. She hand sands each piece before transforming it completely into a vibrant piece of art. Her pieces that are available for purchase can be found in her online store - Gracemere Woods.
