Flatbush Open Studios- Zane Treimanis

Last weekend I got to check out the Flatbush Open Studios in Brooklyn. It was great checking out the artwork and meeting all the artists! :)

I'm going to do separate posts for each of the artists I saw. Today's focus will be on the work of fine artist Zane Treimanis.

I love this! Her wall pieces remind me of micro organisms. Beautiful!

She makes gorgeous sculptural pendants too!
