("I synthesize paintings and photographs to capture both the instant and the immortal, the lies and truths, the real and the surreal. My focus is on gender empathy and empowerment through ultimate honesty in imagery. Misogynistic men rule the world, sex still sells and women are still objectified. We live in a progressive world still stuck in the past. My current project is about a male perspective trying to empathize with something he could never know: the opposite sex.")
