I enjoy the style of this artist because of her compositions and layering of color. The artist takes advantage of fun and repeating patterns found in the shapes of the leaves and the feathers. Its also interesting that the artist seldom uses a horizon line, preferring to have the viewer focus on the immediate surroundings that are full of color such as tree bark or grass.
