Copper & Silver Mask Sculpture is inspired by the writings of Don Miguel Ruiz.  The Toltec teachings, that we all perceive through a screen of experience, has always intrigued Woodford.  She remembers hearing a radio program where a woman had an injury that caused memory loss.  During the interview the woman recounted how freeing it was to have cognisense of the world around her free from prior judgement. Woodford wondered what a gift like that would feel like, and sadly was in a car accident some years later that took her memory and function for years.  

After experimental treatments, Woodford regained her memory and a percentage of her mobility.  During the period of rehabilitation, however, Woodford endured the gift of life without prior judgement & knowledge, and now creates sculptures depicting the child-like reactive cognisense of the world.

Through the eyes of fire depicts the vision of a welder.  Seeing metal, sculpture, fire, copper... in the world around her.  In the mathematics of a shell, in the organic flow of a tree, in the wind and the rain... Woodford creates Mask Series to depict the limited vision of experience, and child-like vision of the unassuming.

"My purpose in life is to help others see, feel, & heal through art". Welded Sculpture is Woodford’s passion. Her work is a dialog with organic flow, movement and scale. Woodford grew up on the East Coast in Southern Maryland, but has called the Midwest home for many years. She travels between South Carolina, Iowa, Nebraska, Dallas, and Arizona where she creates, has representation, or teaches. Traveling enables me to teach, be of service to others and broaden my views." The figurative series she creates depicts her thinking on current as well as historical matters and her perceptions from a female viewpoint. The work is inherently autobiographical while also leaving space for the viewer's interpretative dialog. Woodford's goal is to create healing sculptures that embody a sense of hope. "We are all connected. We are all the same, and could see each other as mirrors but for the smoke in-between.”
