"The Women of Steel took shape through a lengthy creative process fueled by my love for steel. Initially, the premise of this concept was to paint on steel plates and apply layers of automotive paint to achieve a smooth and flawless result. Using a solid color, reminiscent of a vibrant banana yellow or the red of Iron Man, added a superhero touch. The goal was to create collections with colors integrated into our visual society.
I underwent private training in automotive painting, studying application techniques, tools, and blends. Although excited about this approach, during the middle of my learning journey, as I embarked on creating my first collection, I deeply felt that I was missing the mark.
The subject seemed too easy, too common, too commercial, and predictable—a bit too literal. I had allowed myself to be influenced more by the tools and the process than by the pursuit of a deeper, more thoughtful result.
Spontaneously, with this realization, a new path intuitively revealed itself to me. I decided to create the collection 'Women of Steel,' aiming to artistically highlight the great ladies who have influenced our planet. Each one represented by a specific color linked to a historical moment.
No more painting booth equipment; let's go with graffiti paint, extremely fine sandpaper, waxes, and an automotive sander. I will embrace whatever the material substitution created by the sander's friction gives me."
