The Compendium of a Sensual Being, a multifaceted Art & NFT series spanning my personal and digital life from 1997 to 2021 documenting my journey age 22 to 45.


This series comments on the commodification of identity and asks who profits most from the manner one expresses themselves. 
Although the bulk of source images of this mosaic piece are of my body, you can also glimpse rarely spotted gems from my imagination, dreams and aspirations, Artwork born into reality of brush and clay, which pull the viewer's focus away from the obvious. With this piece I hope to convey that All Women Have Value, and that their value is not defined by what people and corporate entities often value them for.  

As a model I was frequently paid in fame more so than in fiat currency, yet when I was offered 250 bitcoin in 2010 for a model stream, I declined in order to complete research reports in pursuit of graduation- BA in Art History/studio arts, a BS in Anthropology, & a Master in Public Administration. Each and every one of us are more than a sum of our collective parts, as demonstrated by the arrangement of 10,120+ unique images within this fascinatingly personal artistic mosaic which can be experienced on the aesthetic level or on a journey of exploration into the source images featuring candid, glamour photography as well as images of my sketches, paintings, sculpture and bellydance performances while I was recovering from Langerhans cell HistiocytosisX, as I was raising a child and going to college. 

Arranging this artwork gave me time to reflect on the inherent access into each other’s lives social media provides, as well as my place over the years in normalizing blurring the line between personal and public. It’s exciting and startling at the same time to realize that I have been sharing my art, thoughts and image online since 1997 through a variety of usernames — 'Tigerlilie,' 'Amber Chase,' 'Lilyfirefitness.' I have been intentional in my emphasis of my educational background, being among the pioneers in digital personas, as well as highlighting the art of erotic expression, in addition to reflecting on the crypto currency era- 
know thy value.


These goals are explored through unique arrangements of my images, many of which have never been seen before by anyone, plus several pieces of artwork that have sold in exhibits. The largest piece in the series Daughter of Midas: Know Thy Value even documents noteworthy behind the scenes moments, such as candid shots from my role as a body double for Michelle Monaghan in Tomorrow you're Gone (2011), and other indie film project bts (I am virgin, Little Blue Pill), as well as my debut performances at Saqra Showcases,  or more tender moments such as right before I walked down the staircase to get married, award ceremonies for college, and the fitting of the most expensive cosplay I ever collaborated in addition to the glamour imagesEach jpg can be experienced as the mosaic interpretation or zoom in to reveal a multi layered photographic journey through time.
