This Artist Is Painting Incredible Works Of Art On Dried Leaves

Valeria Prieto from Iowa has loved nature since she was a child, and made it a habit of keeping nature pressed in books.

The artist combines nature and art, and transforms them into one unique and surprising treat for us: fallen leaves with beautiful illustrations painted on them.

One day, she was walking around a neighborhood, and the autumn leaves were so massive and beautiful that she was inspired to collect them and use them as canvases to paint on.
