working on what will become the studio!

changing this old storage area into a beautiful studio is going to take a lot of hard work... but it's a great, big, open space with a LOT of possibilities. I'm having a lot of fun cleaning things out, ripping out walls, seeing what's underneath. It's great. And there's so much more I want to do with it!

The Marilyn Monroe Project

So, I've decided to take 84 women between the ages of 18 and 84 and turn them all into Marilyn Monroe. This is to prove a point that ALL women are beautiful.. no matter their age, race, style, or size.

I also hope that this project will show that the typical Hollywood size 2 is unralistic and unhealthy, and the woman who's been called the most beautiful woman in the world would be considered a plus size actress by today's standards.

This project will be intense. It'll keep me busy and will probably take a group effort to pull off. But if I can get it done by mid May of next year, I can turn it into a huge exhibit by her 84th birthday on June 1st. What better tribute to Marilyn Monroe than this??

Here are some photos of Marilyn I found online. I'm going to ask the 84 women to choose a photo and together we'll recreate it.

This is going to be fun!
