What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Nature Meets Scissors


Kristen Meyer

Our life is a little chaotic lately. When we had to move out of our house into a much, much smaller apartment, all our belongings ended up scattered around – some stayed in the house (we’re regretting that decision now that the list of “missing” items continues to grow), some went to storage, and whatever would fit came with us to our micro apartment. We’ve been living like this for 1.5 years now, and the chaos starting to get to both of us. But every so often, I find one of these assemblage artists with a steady hand and a great eye for balance and composition, and the orderliness of it all makes me feel just a teensy bit calmer.

These are the utterly lovely, eminently satisfying works by artist Kristen Meyer, and they’re just what I needed today. I find myself getting lost in her soothing-colored backgrounds and implied crisp, geometric shapes.

“I can’t go for a walk in the woods without bringing home a leaf or two or three.”

Do you think she’d come to my house and help me organize my remaining possessions in pleasing, geometric arrangements?

You can see more of this soothing artist’s work on her website and on Instagram.

  1. Being able to see things with the eye of an artist. They may look simple but no..this is time consuming and very creative.

  2. These are glorious and – you’re right – calming. My favourites are the blue eggs at the beginning and the green leaves with circles cut out of them.

    Sorry to read about your “missing” possessions. Almost every house move we’ve made has resulted in something going “missing”. My in-laws had an entire box of artwork go “missing” during their last move.

  3. Lovely! Very imaginative. The top one looks like bits of painted eggshells. Robins’ eggs, come to think of it.
