MATTER + FLOWER {NOUVEAU PEONY }

Its been a busy few months – mostly involving making lots of flowers and experimenting with new petal shapes and kinds of paper. I’ve been working mostly with crepe, but for these new Peonies, I used some lovely bleached tissue. It think the effect is more Peony -like than stiff crepe. Oh, I should mention that I’ve been very inspired by Paper to Petal, a great book by  Rebecca Thuss and Richard Farrell, a wonder duo who create really imaginative and colourful blooms. My Peony has a similar structure and feel.

It’s just in the works now, but the most exciting news is that I may teach these at an upcoming workshop. More details coming soon!
