Illustration // Friday, January 18, 2013

She spent the summers of her childhood marvelling at the tall trees and little creatures in the fields behind her grandparents' house. Burying herself deeper in the thickets of the countryside, she would build dwellings beneath trees, make drawings, hang wind-chimes from branches and collect leaves, sycamore seeds and other natural ephemera that she found on her wanderings.
