Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

My work tends to have social or political undertones. I like to tell a smallish story that plays out against a bigger picture. and I find that a woman's point of view in the world is not very well represented. They say write what you know and I believe that. (On her work aesthetic) See more »

Trivia:

Endorsed Hanes pantyhose in the early Nineties.

Star Sign:

Taurus
