  1. Hello, I wanted to say that I love your work, it is absolutely beautiful. When I focused on art in my career, I had developed a similar style of juxtaposing erotic beauty with a disturbing aesthetic. I think that is why I am so drawn to your work. It displays a simplistic elegance in form, with ornate detail in what seems to be the correct places.

    After much education, I am a computer scientist now, and I wanted to say that I appreciated reading on your wikipedia bio, that you stuck with your style despite professors directing you in a different direction. When I had begun work after my masters degree in computer science, I had several people (including professors) suggest I direct myself towards art, instead of code, mathematics, and computer science. I continue to devote myself to my studies across all forms that I can, and give myself to my 'style/vision' in technology, despite these comments. Success stories like yours empower me and give me hope. Thank you, and I hope you continue to create these beautiful works of art.

    As a post-script, my artistic style came from an inner conflict of my idea of beauty, and my own actual body. I struggled with an eating disorder for many years, and often drew and painted ephemeral, skeletal, abstracted (and occasionally deconstructed) female forms. I don't know if your work stems from a emotionally similar place, but if it does, I hope you are on your own path to finding inner peace as well.
