ARTIST STATEMENT

"I create figurative paintings and sensual photographs that celebrate the eroticism of Humanity, the beauty of femininity and the sensuality of sex.  Eroticism is celebratory, fun and absolutely necessary for a well balanced life between the daily reality we experience and the fantasies we dream.

I seek to represent sexuality and the erotic life in a beautiful, elegant and approachable way.  Sexuality is a universal language and the action of creation, thus deserving more respect and less shame, moral judgment and political or religious dogma based pressures.  

The sexual realm brings human bodies together akin to the way the academic realm brings human minds together. Eroticism combines both and that is why it will always be more interesting than either of the other two domains of Human existence or experience."

 

BIOGRAPHY

I was born in the Czech Republic in 1971, ending up in America after my parents escaped to a refugee camp in Austria in 1977. Within a year they were granted a Visa to come to America and eventually we settled in South Florida. I grew up a European immigrant in a multi-diverse Miami surrounded by Latin-Americans and Hispanics as my primary influence. It so happens that their culture is very sensual and these two points converged into just about everything regarding freedom and eroticism.

I published erotica fiction in the early Y2K era and in the early 90s I photographed young women for South Beach modeling agencies. Eventually I moved on to photographing some of Europe’s popular nude magazine models while I lived in Frankfurt, Germany where I later published some erotic photographic work with a European publishing house.

I developed inspiration to return to college moved by the topics of Sexual Ethics and the Philosophy of Love, among other such groupings after hitting a wall with the erotic fiction. I felt a deeper element was missing not only from my characters but myself as well and I set out to understand what that might be. Unfortunately the demands of three children and a creative spirit became overwhelming to balance and I postponed my degree; however, these studies deeply changed some fundamental views I held on what it meant to be a woman, to be sexual and ultimately, to be a mother, all of which are intricately interwoven. Many of my ideas and views about these topics spew out into my creative endeavors.

When I unexpectedly landed in Savannah, GA, in 2009 I began a private boudoir photography business and in 2010 launched a breast cancer awareness charity project called The Art Cure in Savannah, GA. The project auctioned original art created by breast cancer survivors and other artists from around the world, and 100% of collected funds were donated to charitable organizations locally.

While living abroad in Wiesbaden, Germany from 2011-2013, I dove into exploring and developing the inner artist. While my concentrated focus was on the erotic arts via writing erotic fiction or sexy photography, I felt compelled to play with eroticism and various feminine themes by creating art with my hands, be it with soft pastels as my medium, paint or pencil. I sought to eliminate the camera’s technology and instant gratification and words’ complexity and depth to view erotica in new ways, something lighter with a different authenticity, more fun and expressionistic.  Artistically, I'm just getting started."
