Orgasm was shown in The Kinsey Institute’s 2009 Juried Art Show, adjudicated by Jennifer Cahn, currently curator for the Brownsville Museum of Fine Art. The exhibition was held at the School of Fine Arts Gallery at Indiana University in Bloomington, and appeared in that year’s virtual exhibit on the Institute’s website. Both Orgasm and Silky are in the permanent art collection of The Kinsey Institute.

- After many years of experimentation with different techniques using rope, thread and fabric, I now work in a medium which perfectly suits my concept of sensuality and my ideas on the mystery of life as seen from a completely female angle. Working with textiles is sensual in its own right, the fabrics are pliable according to their many different textures, and a delight to the eye. My work mainly explores sex and reproduction, which might fairly be called the major obsession of all living creatures on earth, and I include the intangible concept of love, the principal obsession of human beings.
