Paper flowers

 

When I was in high school I dropped biology for an independent study in the art of the '60s. My guidance counselor didn't think it was a good idea, but none the less I persisted and was allowed to take the class. As I take this journey of masterpiece recreation I had to make a stop at Warhols Flowers, they not only so perfectly represent the spirit of the '60s but also really resonates with me as a person. At first glance, his flowers seem bright and light-hearted but there is a darker grittiness just below the surface.

If you are unfamiliar with making paper flowers you might not notice how different the paper I use in my kits are. Traditionally paper flowers are made out of crepe paper or tissue paper. While these papers do make amazing flowers I have never been satisfied with how flat the colors seem. When tackling such a masterpiece a single color would have never worked. It needs those colors, it needs those offset printing patterns. The paper in this kit allows all of those details so that they not only represent an hibiscus but evoke the Pop Art movement.

 
 

Available as Kits!

 I have turned my paper flowers into kits because I believe that art is for everyone and everyone is an artist. I’ve taken my expertise as a paper flower artist and concentrated it into kits that provide everything needed to make paper flowers with an unparalleled level of detail. My kits are a fresh way to connect with the world of fine art and have flowers that will last for years. They allow people to skip the years of work and get right to the good stuff, connecting with the joy of making something with their hands.
