Winter's sculpture is influenced by contemporary Japanese architecture, forms that convey poetic connections between man-made construction and the timeless quality of nature. Wood is her primary medium, which she frequently, casts in resin, creating translucent forms that play light against shadow and mass against void. She is interested in ethereal qualities revealed between the seen and unseen.
Winter's conceptual ideas for printmaking develop together with the three-dimensional work, both emphasizing "the touch and feeling of fragile connections". Winter's etchings and silkscreen prints are created using a very direct process, often layering ink transparencies to create a delicate sense of light and air.
Winter received her MFA from Southern Methodist University, Meadows School of the Arts in 1993. Winter's work is informed by her previous experience in space planning and architecture. Winter lives and works in Dallas and is represented by galleries in Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Austin and Santa Fe.
Her work has been selected for exhibitions by curators from Museum of Modern Art, NY; International Print Center , NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; High Museum of Art, GA. Additionally, Winter's work was recently exhibited in Arequipa, Peru, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, and the Austin Museum of Art exhibit "Advancing Tradition: 20 Years of Printmaking at Flatbed Press". Winter's work is also included in numerous private, public, and museum collections.
