Mixed media on panel: Ficus pods, paper clay, poly-resin, iron powder, bronze powder, acrylic, patina solutions
I started this piece 12 years ago as a cancer patient going through chemo, hyped up on steroids and unable to sleep. I spent hours rolling small balls of paper clay and glueing them onto panels. I then graduated to other materials to create texture. Cancer was a pinnacle experience that changed everything. This piece was started in 2010 and was completed in 2022. It is part of my series called "Strength, Beauty and Change."
