Crepe paper flowers as a study of beauty
& an expression of gratitude
I started making paper flowers in June 2017 as door gifts to guests for my wedding. As a newly married couple saddled with new stresses like having a mortgage, making the flowers myself was also economical for decorating the empty rented venue. Eventually, I made about 300 flowers for my wedding- Peonies, Hibiscuses, Roses, Tulips and a ton of leaves.
Currently as I write this in August 2018, I continue to make paper flowers as a break from my existing artworks and have since undertook commissions for various occasions. Personally, the process of making paper flowers is a study of beauty (from observing plants) and an expression of gratitude.
