    Hi there,
    Have you got a page on facebook?

    How brave you are to paint the female figure in it’s entirety, especially the vagina, which very few artists dare paint either as a single image or in any sexual position. There is a famous painting of a woman with her legs apart, painting in the 1800’s, which I believe is in a city art gallery, sorry I can’t be more informative, but it is a brilliant painting. As an artist myself I have never dare paint any of my models, owing to the narrow minded people of even today, although I did do one a few years ago of a male and female having sexual intercourse, but it was for my own collection and not exhibited. Another of my painting was of a female tied to the cross with her ankles behind the cross hence forcing her legs apart, The theme was that of the suffering and general concept of how the male sees the female, and how the female feels being the slave to man’s desires.
    Any way I wish you well with your future concepts and paintings,

    Kindest regards Eric

    I am interested in the themes you explore in your work and think your paintings are incredible. Who are your main influences/ do you know of any other artists within this same genre?

    Thank you for your time,

      Hello Katie, 🙂

      Having studied for many years, I have explored how different artists have used techniques, from Rembrandt, Goya and of course Artemisia Gentileschi, to Cassatt and other impressionnist painters. I cannot say with any clarity that this artist or that one most influenced me though many have indeed.

      Much of my thematic influences emanate from my life as a woman who was born with a condition called transsexuality and all that that can mean. I am also a Queer woman and a strong feminist and women’s concerns are my concerns. So, be it my series on vulvas that was in part inspired by my own surgeries and The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler, or the pieces on the theme of queer women’s lives, my erotic paintings or the more clearly feminist messages like ‘ Breaking free ‘, ‘ Smashing Images ‘, ‘ Herpower ‘etc,… they all boil down to waht I feel is important to me to speak out on.

      I think women artists such as Judy Chicago, Frida Khalo, Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, Georgia O’Keefe, Louise Bourgeois, Rosa Bonheur, Suzanne Valadon, Camille Claudel and so many others are great and powerful role models and demonstrate that we women are at least as talented and brilliant artists as any man as ever been.

      I wish to say thank you for showing your interest in my art, I am so happy that I am reaching people, this is important to me. 🙂
