M.I.T. Gallery started in Provincetown, MA, an artist colony on the very tip of the Cape, where all things are possible. The series "Men In Tutus" was my source of inspiration for the name of the gallery. These images confront societal taboos and encourages people to "put on their own tutu".
It's not easy. I struggle with this myself every day. Sometimes you have to actually find the tutu and then be true to it. The encouragement I've received through the people who support my work has made an incredible difference in my life. I can only hope that I am honoring the artist in their hearts as well.
