| OAK LEAF |
This highly texturized, multiple layered paper mache oak leaf, shown in large scale 5' by 7' height was created using a very thin chinese rice paper, which allowed me to create the detailed vein like surface. Finished in iridescent pearl acrylic, and epoxy resin, this piece was where I perfected my particular paper mache technique. Growing up in central Canada, I was always fascinated by the mighty oak forests that surrounded my home, and on many occasions found myself wandering amongst these trees during my youth. Rustic, modern, organic, and large scale the oak leaf is a powerful piece in my leaf sculpture series.
