Ms. Witten chose bronze as her medium because it is the material best suited for her work, which favors open forms that incorporate movement and negative space.Her primary focus is to distill the chosen subject matter into its ultimate expressive synthesis of beautiful form, gesture and sprits.The human figure, animals, birds and antique musical instruments make up the body of her work.

She teaches sculpture workshops at the Southern Vermont Art Center in Manchester, VT, and gives lectures on the lost-wax method of creating bronze sculpture incorporating a CD she produced about bronze casting.
