The Art of Invisible Landscapes: A stunning collection of art inspired by images seen through the microscope

This is a journey that takes you on an exploration of landscapes and colours evoking foreign lands and medieval stained glass windows; to views into worlds invisible to the naked eye.

Join the artist as she reveals the abstract patterns, intimate views and mystical landscapes she has captured for us.
