Following is an excerpt from The Artist's Statement from her website: "...I wanted to take away the pseudo-stances in any given pose and present the emotional scene behind the eyes and the purse of the lips. The eyes and the lips became my trademark, a place where all the signals of the truth were held no matter how deceiving the appearance otherwise. These psychological portraits of women became what I termed "hundred proof bordello"--a place where honesty is stronger than the urge to lie, a place where authenticity is bared and no mood denied due to its un-ladylike contortions. In my perpetual gallery, all girls could bare their most gnashing teeth, their most needy lust, their most haughty pretensions and their most primal hunt for love."
