These beautiful and delicate photographic collages are the inspirational work of Ysabel LeMay. LeMay lives in Naples, Florida where she finds the tranquility to focus on her art. Recently, she has been drawing the attention of the New York city art scene. She collaborates with Interior designers, architects, art dealers and art galleries in major cities such as New York, Chicago and Miami. Ysabel explains “Each branch, each flower, each leaf is photographed and positioned one by one. Every insect, every plant, every bird that I capture with my lens has an individuality that I want to enhance and share with the viewer. I believe it is often in the simple details wherein lies divinity.” See more of her stunning work at

We can’t tell you much about Miroco Machiko apart from her being a very talented Japanese artist and illustrator. Nevertheless we just love her charming take on flora in these beautiful paintings. Her use of colour is just stunning and there’s even more delights on her website of a whole menagerie of whimsical animals to admire. Maybe she could design a range of prints based on these paintings, we’re sure they’d be snapped up.
