Sydney-based artist Mylyn Nguyen keeps herself busy by playing with dirt and other natural materials. Inspired by her daydreaming habits and invisible friends, she creates cute, tiny sculptures of animals, plants and small people from felt, pebbles, moss, dirt and twigs she collects. Click through the images to discover Nguyen’s enchanting eco artworks.
Australian artist Mylyn Nguyen first started her craft when she decided she wanted to give form to imaginary friends. She first drew some pictures of what they would look like, and then sculpted them from natural materials .
To make her tiny figurative art she uses all sorts of compostable and found objects, including moss, pebbles, cotton strings, dirt, sponges, glass bottles , paper, twigs, clay and felt.
Nguyen’s cute little creatures  keep her company throughout the day, and they are the closest tangible representation of her imaginative mind. From a fox made from clay to a row of snails carrying mossy trees, Nguyen’s wonderful creations are always themed around creatures and nature.
