Artist Statement

I was inspired my senior year of college at NSU by a photograph in the endocrinology chapter of my biochemistry book. There are different preferences as to the ideal form. I would describe the goddess, Venus as the best form. I have drawn an anatomy character and it was an accident that I drew both gonads. The hermaphrodite may not realize nature’s chosen sexuality. This work is not an ill patient and speaks to me as being a step towards equality among women and men despite genital differences. It’s clear to me that women and men are equal and we should try to get along as “one human” and not female vs. male.
