Artist Statement

Historically, the painted portrait signifies prestige, beauty and social power.  I choose to portray bodies which are often invisible in this culture.

The face is our commonly recognized self – our “mask” of identity. Focusing exclusively on the torso shines a light on a part of the individual that is usually hidden. Each torso bears traces of unique personal experience: tattoos, childbirth, aging, stretchmarks and surgical interventions.

The agency of the model is integral to my work. The sitter's choice to have a portrait done is a courageous act of self-revelation. Portraiture involves participation, collaboration and even performance.
