“Fusion” is a blend of myself and the Hindu goddess Kali. This piece depicts a very feminine and yet powerful being. The paisley, lace details in the skirt are beautiful but also symbolize vulnerability and sensitivity. As a mother and an artist I’ve often wished that I had multiple arms so that I could accomplish even more as I’m sure many can relate to. Finally in this self portrait I have all of the arms that I need to multitask as the dynamic, strong, commanding Kali. I created this piece in the spring of 2016. Made completely of steel this piece has a copper painted finish.
