wallflower n. 1 Informal, a person, especially a girl or woman, who sits by the wall at a dance instead of dancing. 2 a perennial plant with sweet-smelling yellow, orange, or red flowers, found on walls.

Each of these decorative paintings was produced using flower or petal shaped cookie cutters. The vibrant colours and colour combinations in these paintings will not allow them to “sit quietly” on the wall. This work extends on the theme of asserting a position - the desire to take up space, to be noticed and heard. The piece Forget-me-not was also presented in this exhibition.
