"And the leaves that are green turn to brown
And they wither with the wind
And they crumble in your hand"

Simon & Garfunkel - Leaves that are green

 

 

As a child I was always collecting leaves and drying them in books to preserve them. Not much has changed since then, I still see them as little pieces of treasure. I think the transformation of the leaves is something I find really interesting. Due to their temporaniness of the shapes and colours I feel the urge to capture them in my work. 

 

You can also find the felted leaves in my webshop. To use as a coaster on the table or to hang on the wall as a tapestry.
