  • Why have you chosen this work? : Because I found each piece to be so stunning. The calm, delicate look to her work is just so lovely.
  • The context of the work? : I think the context of her work is nature’s simplistic beauty.
  • What could you learn from the work? : I don’t think there’s a lesson to be learned here. I think it just lets you look at something in a way you didn’t before, or usually wouldn’t.
