Wonder Women 017 – Barbie the Welder
Barbie the welder is an American metal sculptor. She grew up in New York, learning from her parents the art of being able to make or fix something yourself. She started her career in welding after finding inspiration from the film Cast Away. Barbie started her welding career working for a manufacturer as a sheet metal fabricator and welder. After working there for five years, she quit to start working as an independent artist. She really found her niche through demonstrations and exhibitions at chainsaw sculpture events. Now she has produced sculptures for a number of significant clients, and runs welding exhibitions at trade fairs.
