Figurative sculptures are created with personal castings because the sculptures are inherently autobiographical. During this third phase of feminism it's important to discuss what it is like to be a woman. While we may have been taught we can do anything, it is important to teach the next generation that they do not have to do everything.
I execute every step of my process. From stock steel I plasma cut, form, weld, grind, and finish out each sculpture, myself. I neither hire fabricators nor subcontract processes. Each sculpture I create teaches me a new unique lesson, and informs the next piece. I grow as a designer and fabricator with the construction of each unique sculpture, which propels my design ideas and execution abilities.
My purpose in life is to help others see, feel and heal through art. Helping others find healing in their own creative process is only a part of my curriculum. Group discussions are designed for every class. As an instructor I teach process, propose ideas, listen/mediate, and watch the individual & collective beauty of those around me.
