Anne Ten Donkelaar graduated in 2007 at the ‘Utrecht school of The Art’ in Netherlands. She says about her work:

A damaged butterfly, a broken twig, a bumblebee, some strangely grown weeds: I find all these unique discoveries in my path and then take them home to my studio. Here, I take my time to explore the objects and try to work out how I can show each one to it’s best advantage. My finds inspire me. While looking at them I can invent my own stories about their existence and their lives.
By protecting these precious pieces under glass, I give the objects a second life and hope to inspire people to make up their own stories about them.
