We all have our own personality traits to make us unique. When we're with friends or family and one member is missing, the group feels out of balance because that person isn't there to bring their own individual quirk. We can be labelled with these traits such as 'the joker' or 'the quiet one' and through my Confetti series I have illustrated this using petals. Each petal is different to the next but without every one of them, the flower can't exist as a whole.
The pieces in this series range from 60x60cm to 100x100cm. They are hand drawn in coloured pencil and set in a square of 24 carat, 10 hours hand pressed gold leaf.
