Nicole Gustafsson aka “Nimasprout”, has had a lifelong interest in the natural world that continues to be a theme in her artwork. Her colorful gouache and ink illustrations and drawings depict fantastical floating landscapes, dotted with tiny trees, figures, and sparkling rock formations.

Gustafsson’s recent series titled “Celestial Spaces” illustrates other-worldy planetoids that she calls “crystal-scapes”, inspired by rocks like quartz and geodes from her own personal collection.
