This recent work titled 'Medusa Misunderstood', explores the theory that a monstrous facade hides the story of a virginal priestess , once possessing beauty desired by many, is defiled and violated and subsequently punished and cursed for an act of crime committed by a man possessing undeniable power. It is a nod to the "Me Too" movement, exploitation, victim-blaming, injustice faced by women.
