I am 19. Living in NYC . A student at Martha Graham School of Dance. I modeled For Art Schools around the city to pay the rent. Painting, Drawing and Photography classes. Many of these photos were sold to Playboy and Penthouse when I became famous. The Photographer’s Exploited Me and then the Patriarchy tried to Shame me for Being Naked. I told the Press “i Was Not Ashamed” and this became headline news. And this turned into A collaboration between Warhol and Haring! . I am the proud owner of 4 of these paintings. Given to me later. as a wedding gift. . You cannot stop Art by trying.
