I love creating paper sculptures of mythical creatures, and enjoy learning the symbolism and stories of these creatures in different cultures. I hope this medallion-style dragon brings good luck to your home.
Dimensional, relief-style, hand-cut paper sculpture
Art size: 6″ x 6″
Materials: acid free papers and acid free foam core, archival glue
I create my paper sculptures by cutting intricate shapes from archival paper with an X-Acto knife. I curve the individual cut shapes with a dowel, then glue the pieces together between layers of foam core to create dimensional works of art. While this may seem tedious to some, the process of cutting, shaping, and creating are moments of pure happiness for me.
