Influence and Inspiration
This is the image I come home to each day - tile work next to my front door. I have been renting this house from the original owner for about 4 yrs. - she is 96 yrs old. This bullfighter and raging bull seem to have influenced my work (the style of clothing - not so much the bullfighting) Almodovar is one of my favorite film makers (All About My Mother, Matador, Tie Me Up,Tie Me Down, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown...) so when I first came to consider renting this house the tiles made it feel "just right". My latest belts, chokers and some of my hats are starting to have the brave and bright look of a traditional performer!
