I create enamel painted steel and aluminum sculptures that distill my responses to my environment into cultural symbols. I begin with very immediate sketches that capture my personal reactions, then build this abstract vision into a linear welded outline.
I call my process "drawing in space" because it represents for me the coming together of a rational organizing principle with an exploration of the nature of my understanding. The simultaneous combination of source and result I have come to see as a truly a reflection of my femininity, my humanity, an abstract expression in a sense of all human activity.
