Excerpt from article
Ask Kuksht what got her into welded sculpture and youʼll get a surprising answer-----“playing the trombone when I was 10 years old.” She explains it like this, “Well, at that age it didnʼt seem like any big deal, but it got me totally comfortable doing something a little different, and being the only girl in with a bunch of guys.” That seems to have been Kukshtʼs modus operandi ever since. She worked at Sea- First bank as a technical writer and ended up as a senior executive at Bank of America. She restored and lived on an antique boat; she started riding motorcycles almost 40 years ago . Kuksht accidently found herself in many non-traditional roles, often as one of the few females around. “I never set out to do anything unusual, I just do what I think will be fun.”
