Who I Am

I'm Just a girl celebrating natural history with art!

Hello, my name is Barbara and I am the owner and operator of Object Natura. 
Object Natura is a mixed media mashup of art and nature, of the serene and the obscure, the new and the reclaimed.

My artistic Journey was born out of a love for the secret stories of nature. Since I was little I have been fascinated with being in nature. The color of sunlight hitting lush moss, of stumbling upon a patch of mushrooms so perfectly placed you think it must be a faerie garden. The story and history of fossils, gemstones, and crystals.

I provide beautiful, handcrafted, wearable art and décor that celebrates the natural world and the creative artistry found within it. I am always creating these tiny treasures so be sure to stop by often to see a celebration of natural history, reclaimed materials, and crystals galore.

As a lover of natural history I believe it is our place to showcase and educate future generations and curious folks alike about the history of fossils and minerals, life/death cycles, and the vast beauty in this world. My hope is that by doing so, we are reminded that this planet and the inhabitants of it need to pe protected from harmful and unethical practices and that conservation is the key to a healthy and beautiful planet.

I hope that you find something that inspires and speaks to you while you visit! I'm constantly creating so if you like my style please give us a follow on Instagram as I am branching out in new artistic directions regularly and would love your feedback! We hope you'll join us on our journey and be a part of our adventure.
