""Dina Angel-Wing has focused on creating three-dimensional art that appeals to different senses. Her sculpture aims at a visual experience that is both aesthetic and intellectually engaging, it can be representative, symbolic, or humorous while juxtaposing soft curvilinear figures with architectonic stands that contrasts rough weathered steel with smooth bronze.

Her portraits interpret a sense of the person while capturing a lively personality from life sketching or researching old photographs and interviews, with the final cast in bronze."
