  • Feb 13 2012: Hello Janet I'm doing an essay over your artwork and i was wondering what do you consider your art to be? I mean it is definitely unique but how would you describe it, or under what genre would you put it? I apologize if it seems too dull but i just want to know. I'm an art history student who has never had an interest in art but yours certainly gives me a feeling of awe. Not to mention how do you perceive your art to be revolutionary, taking into account the unique techniques you have implemented in your sculptures..
