I long have admired and learned from Robert Mapplethorpe's photography. His ability to juxtapose darks and lights with form is a continuing reference for me. I was extremely proud and delighted when, at one of my exhibitions in which I included my photographs of flowers, an associate of Robert Mapplethorpe's purchased one of my images which he liked to Mapplethorpe's own florals. To be compared with an artist whom I so deeply admire is indeed a supreme compliment!
