On October 16, 1993 my husband died of multiple gunshot wounds resulting from a robbery incident in which he and I were approached and both of us shot by a masked man with an automatic handgun. Several events surrounding the aftermath of the robbery and subsequent grieving process made an impact on my art-making. An event that made a strong impression was the first time I held an automatic hand gun. The feeling of that hand gun made me very aware of its overt power, as well as, its subliminal power and sexuality.
