Inspired by nature and the outdoors, Amelia Schroeder’s art has a flowing and organic feel to it that evokes memories of water, wind, and trees.

“Nature is the best piece of art I have ever seen,” says Schroeder, “From grapevines and bubbles to rain and microscopic tissues, I am influenced and inspired by the patterns, luminosity, colors and shadows of our planet.”
