Nostalgic Wonder was inspired watching my daughter discover the natural world as she grew from a newborn to a toddler.  Her process of discovering flora and fauna for the first time brought me back to the wonder and fascination I experienced in my own childhood as I explored the plants, insects, and animals in the forest surrounding my home.  From the early sleep deprived days when she squinted at sun-dappled leaves as they wiggled in the wind to the wild romps through grass as frightened birds flee her grasp, the collection captures the playful and whimsical view of nature through a child’s awestruck eyes.
