A 17-year-old turned these fallen leaves into incredible works of art.

It's fall! That means it's time to get excited about pumpkin spiced anything, Halloween, and of course, the beautiful falling leaves.

But there's someone who's even more excited about autumn than you are, if you can believe it. Her name is Joanna Wirażka.

And she is a leaf artist.

You might remember Wirażka's work from 2015, when she started to gain major notoriety for her incredible creations. Simply put, she creates miniature detailed paintings on fallen leaves.

Since then, she's been invited to share her art on TV, people have written about her work, and she's had thousands of people reach out to tell her how much they love her leaf art.

Her art is simply spellbinding.

And, thankfully, she's made more this year. So here are 11 of 17-year-old Wirażka's newest and most intricately gorgeous paintings, just in time for fall:

1. This one she calls "Paradise."

2. This Venetian canal.

3. This leaf is in honor of the victims of the Paris attacks in November 2015.

4. This Ferris wheel.

5. This one called "Faithful Friends."

6. This mesmerizing lightning storm.

7. "Modern Starry Night."

8. This burning orange sunset.

9. This one simply called "Happiness."

10. This garden under the stars.

11. This neon flamingo welcoming you to paradise.

At only 17, Wirażka's talents are well beyond her age. And she's only getting better.

"Everything which has happened over the past year I treat as an adventure," she said in an email. "I'm a young artist and still want to develop."

As for what's next, Wirażka said she's trying her hand at some different mediums, like painting on canvas, as well as some other new projects. After all, that's what the fall is all about: shedding the old to make room for new growth.

These gorgeous leaves might not be around forever, so we'd better enjoy them while we can.
