That's my rule. I realized long ago that when I am in it, have it in my surroundings, or at least looking at images of it, everything will be OK.
So why not make nature my focus in art and design, right?!
Not that I don't stray now and then (HUMAN nature), but I love documenting my interactions with the natural world, be it with a monoprint, a photograph, or a surface pattern design.
