Etsy Artist Creates Magic from Palm Trees

From this....

To this....

An Etsy store owner takes reclaimed palm fronds from trees and creates interesting characters from her imagination. Janet, who is a native of Florida, has been painting palm fronds for approximately 13 years. To relax, she rides her bike around searching for fronds that catch her eye and inspire her to create fun works of art.

She also recycles many different materials to use in her art, including rubber to make the fins and teeth for this particular fish.

If you would like to see more, you can check out her Etsy store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/IntoTheTrees?ref=seller_info

To relax, Janet spends her time riding her bike to find new fronds that inspire her to paint. Not knowing what you'll find is what keeps it exciting for this artist.
