Community's Choice Winner

Katelyn Morse
I'm a young East Coast artist inspired by the intricate beauty and calming effects of gazing into nature. My paints are all inspired by the wonder of the earth - including this forest full of evergreens. It is a professional reproduction of my painting and comes in a number of different sizes. I think it brings life to any space!
