"As a woman artist, I have found my voice in sexuality and came to an understanding and acceptance of body parts. My work usually circles around inner struggle. Every human is capable of feeling great "pleasure and pain" and this is one of my dominant themes in my art. The personas in my paintings are based on two figures consuming each other sexuality and emotionally, and "pain and pleasure" is the outcome of these interactions."
