Artist's Statement

The paintings are large scale photorealistic, impressionist portraits of the youth//fashion culture including international fashion models, such as Hanne Gaby Odelle, Kasia Strussnik, Samantha Gradoville, Zuzanna Krzatala and other big names in fashion like Lindsey Wixon and many more. They have an air of Nan Golden as the girls and I have been close friends for many years, laughing, dancing, playing and enjoying the beauty that is life, fleeting in every moment. The images are based off of real life experiences although with a conscious intent to echo fashion photography but in a natural state.
