As it turns out, Twiggy cleared up her absence on Instagram back in October of 2017, a little over two years ago. "Hey guys!" she wrote in a post captioned "Pretty much sums it up :))." "Just wanted to update you on my goings on. I've left my job to go back to school to get my welding ticket and I'll be documenting that as best I can."

Twiggy has had quite the glow-up since her time on Discovery Channel. She's gone on to complete the welding program at George Brown College that she left the show for, and still seems to have her affinity for automobiles and motorcycles, based on the recent projects she's posted on her page.

After spending the summer taking some time to recharge in Ontario, the talented welder is back on the road — connecting with and championing women like her in the automotive trades. "Let's build an epic girl gang!" she writes about the second annual women in trades taco party she's hosting in November.

"The older we get, the less we are just surviving and we just start living," read a recent introspective post of Twiggy's. "I'm a master at surviving, but living, properly living is hard. Buying property, responsibilities, taxes, money, careers, progressing ... I'm so grateful to see everyone who constantly stands in my corner."

We're definitely still standing in your corner, Twiggy! It looks like Twiggy just got started on Vegas Rat Rods, and the best is definitely yet to come.
