I have always been attracted to starting "with a blank canvas" and creating something unique and pleasing to the mind, body and spirit. With a degree in psychology, background in martial arts and love for nature, bringing life to a piece of art is truly magical. When creating a wire bonsai tree starting with just a few spools of wire, it feels as though the tree is literally "growing" with each twist .
Each custom-made wire art creation is unique and one-of-a-kind. Bonsai tree wire sculptures are 100% hand-twisted and composed of 52 to 420 feet of 20- gauge colored aluminum wire. On average, it takes 10-14 hours to complete one tree.
I am inspired by nature.
There is a purpose to every branch, root and leaf on a tree. Recreating a living plant or animal as a wire sculpture, that will last forever, is extremely rewarding. These wire trees are wonderful gifts and can be used as decoration for an office, living room, bedroom or any place you would like to bring in a piece of nature and "life" .
DRAGONFLY WARRIOR PRODUCTIONS, LLC was founded by Christine Booras, embracing a personal philosophy on self-empowerment and appreciation of nature's gifts. Our goal is to inspire; through art, music, books or merely exposure to the beautiful world around us and the joys it can bring if we take the time to look and listen.
Christine has a multi-faceted background of professional experience and interests. She was born and raised military in Jacksonville, FL. After graduating from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, she went to work in the corporate world as a Human Resources Manager. After over 25 years in the field, she decided it was time for a new endeavor and started her own business in the health and fitness industry.
While working full-time and running her own business she still made the time to participate in many different sports ranging from rock-climbing and competitive bodybuilding to fencing and yoga. In 1990 she began training in martial arts, eventually competing in Kung Fu and Tai Chi, ranking nationally in both disciplines. She has continued her martial arts training and currently practices in the art of both karate and Jodo in Jacksonville, FL.
Additionally, Christine participates and competes in traditional archery, holding two national records in barebow recurve division for her age group in the National Senior Games. She also enjoys shooting traditional longbow, recurve and primitive bow shooting 3D archery at North Florida Archers in Jacksonville, FL. Walking the trails is quite therapeutic and her means of "forest bathing".
Rekindling her musician skills from college when she played clarinet in the school band, Christine started playing the bagpipes in 2013. She currently is a member of Jacksonville Pipes & Drums and Jacksonville Fire Rescue Pipes & Drums, performing at special events, parades and celebrations of life.
Above all else, Christine has always had a deep respect, admiration and love for animals and being in nature. She has never been without a pet and continues to have a menagerie of animals at home plus a colony of feral cats (which she wrote and published a book about). She also competed with her two dogs, Valkyrie and Nova in K9 frisbee, qualifying for and competing in the World Finals twice with Nova. She now has a new English Shepherd pup, Kai, who will create a history of his own. She has also served as a volunteer at both the Jacksonville Zoological Gardens and Marineland and has been caring for a colony of feral cats since 2008, writing and publishing a book ("Me, My Ferals & I") about her unique and challenging experiences.
