The inspiration for this set of 12 drawings came from my childhood Spears toy set of Flower Play plastic flowers. The box had printed assembly instructions on the lid to put the various flower parts together to make 12 specific flowers as well as a suggestion to re-make them and create your own designs. I remember playing with this set with great concentration and, upon re-discovering this box so many decades later, I was inspired to investigate its contents again- but this time as an artist. I decided to combine the specific flower alongside it's assembly instructions and toys from my collection. I wanted to give each flower a story and I used coloured pencil crayon on paper to evoke drawing materials from my childhood. I have tried to suggest the atmosphere of a fairy tale and create images both beautiful and unsettling: to use rigorous representational drawing to present something both specific and mysterious. Each drawing was made specifically to fit a vintage frame.
