Flower Petal and Ink Illustrations

Combining ink and found objects in art form is nothing new, but inspired by blooms and flower petals, Meredith Wing has created a collection of beautifully illustrated – well, flower girls.

The colorful petals of tulips, sunflowers, roses, and more grace Wing’s sketches, creating unique patterns and soft textures. With each petal intentionally placed, different shapes are created. The same number of hydrangea petals can form a voluminous, billowing skirt or the trumpet of a piece drawn to cling around a figure.

The New York City-based interior design and fashion aficionado values the ephemerality, or fleetingness, of her flower girls. According to Wing on her website, none of these pieces is glued to keep. They are memorialized only by her sketches and the photos she takes.

Full of whimsy and elegance, these designs are the fusion of a love for fashion, illustration, and the beauty of flowers.
