Watercolor Paintings With Intricate Flora and Fauna

Michelle Morin is a surface designer and an illustrator who founded Home of Dodo (formerly known as United Thread) in 2008. Her watercolor paintings are hugely inspired by flora and fauna, a world she got introduced to when she worked as a private gardener on a huge property situated on the eastern tip of Cape Cod. This job gave her an opportunity to observe the plants as well as insects and birds around them. She started to sketch during her breaks which gradually evolved into intricate paintings with complex patterns and beautiful landscapes.

Michelle Morin has collaborated with many prominent brands including H&M, Red Cap Cards, Anthropologie, Chronicle Books, Nike, Yves Saint Laurent, Land of Nod, Bespoke Letterpress, and Vilshenko to name a few.

The above shown work is something I handpicked from her Instagram and her online store here.
