In the Dragon and Diva art works, I elevate the humblest of discarded materials to iconic status for the viewers contemplation. This is an ongoing theme I have been working on for quite a few years in my mixed media drawings, paintings, mono-prints, and most recently, in my 3D sculptural prints and traditional bronze castings. Reconfiguring botanical detritus fragments into small 3D figurative models allows me to transform them into fantastic metaphorical entities, evoking personal narratives that viewers may bring to each work.
