“This is a portrait of Marilyn Monroe which I have titled ‘The Queen of Hearts’. Suffice to say Monroe is one of the greatest legends of the 20th century who has touched millions of America’s hearts through her own art: movies and screenplays. Her image alone is an iconic representation of the changing times that demarcates an important era in history. The background of hearts signify not only her many adoring and loving fans but also acknowledge the trail of broken hearts she left behind with her untimely death in 1962. Many men might have envied people like baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller who won Monroe’s heart, but people will always have her history of movie reels to reminisce over and keep the legend alive.”
