Toyland is a collection of paintings, children's toys, small pieces of furniture, entertainments, a false tree and assorted objects variously created, collected, devised and decorated by Ms. Crossland.
Jackie Crossland is a self-made painter. She paints with acrylics, usually on scrap wood or abandoned pieces of furniture. Primarily, her work is collected by friends. She considers her paintings to be a private amusement and a way of remembering. She likes acrylics because they are 'sort of like liquid crayons.'
