When Your Inner Child is Still Alive

One of my personal favorite instagrammers – Kerstin Hiestermann (aka khiesti) from Germany – has an amazing vision on things around her. Any tiny object, petal, leaf etc. can easily make it to her minimalistic pictures of the little monster’s life. Sometimes even words inspire Kerstin. Hiestermann doesn’t obtain a degree in art, she is a teacher, though very talented in her drawings. Her creations always grab attention and make me smile while scrolling the Instagram feeds, totally proving that “the child inside her is still alive”. Very recommended to follow.
