This artist has managed to create the perfect storm in a tea cup

There may be many storms in tea cups in the age of the internet, at least in a figurative sense, but one artist has managed to turn them into a thing of beauty.

Brooklyn-based designer Victoria Siemer, aka Witchoria, told i100.co.uk that she makes her "coffee cup manipulations" as a nice way to get her creative juices flowing each day.

You can see more of Witchoria's work on her website here and buy her prints here.
