Canadian-Mexican artist Dessie Jeanne Marshall of Violent Hippie Art has created some lovely artworks with large leaves as natural canvases.
Silhouettes of animals like whales, dragonflies and even mermaids are carved freehand from plant leaves, playing with negative space to showcase their intricate vein systems.
Through her works, she hopes that others will see leaves in a new light—one that “respects the vitality and true value” of nature. Some of them are available for purchase through her website.
Check out some of her works below.
