Working with steel wire is much like life. You take something plain, commonplace, even harsh and turn it into something beautiful. Cym’s vision is to manipulate hard metal materials into representations of the grace and motion that surrounds us. She hopes to capture that split second of beauty which grabs our attention and holds us in the moment.
Cym is self-taught and has worked in other mediums such as pastels and wood but the manipulation of steel, gold and copper has completely captured her imagination and drives her artistic expression.
Cym lives in Huntsville, Alabama and draws inspiration for her work from the forested trails on the surrounding hillsides.
