"The tiger came about a little later. My aunt, Janet Gelphman, among many other creative things, is an art collector and has a painting by Joy Laville above her couch of a nude woman reclining above a sleeping panther. I love the danger that quietly exists between the nude and the panther. It is powerful and blatantly erotic. I started experimenting with tigers in my drawings and when it came time to pitch my animated thesis film, I knew that I wanted to further explore the relationship that exists between woman and feline. My film, entitled "Tigress," is about finding your voice, or as I like to say "finding your inner tiger." '
