As a beginning, especially for those who may be new to your work, please tell us a little about your background, where you were born, where you live.
First, I’d like to thank you, Ms. Diaz, for extending this interview to me and posting some examples of my images.
I was born in the mid 1950’s and came from a very strict, but loving background. I make that distinction because when you say “strict” background, people tend to think that means cruel or harsh; it wasn’t. But, it was very suppressed in many ways. As you know in human nature, when things are suppressed they will eventually make themselves known, erupting (what a choice in words) at the most surprising times and in the most surprising ways. In my family the sensual and sexual aspects of life were very suppressed and never discussed. But there were specific events where “duty” was the mask that covered the pleasure of control.
