Hi , my name is Ien, I like art and I am creative on so many ways. I make paintings for more than 10 years, use my fantasy and paint realistic.

Walking in Forest and Nature Area, give me inspiration to Paint. I also like it to make photos about the little things I see in Nature.

I love Nature and go for long walks with my doggy Cathy. Making macro photos of flowers and Butterflies is my passion.
