Self Portrait

Acrylic paint

24 x 36”

“I began creating art as a model when I was 16 years old. I studied art & design at The Community College of Philadelphia, then photography, sculpture, and wheel throwing at The University of Pennsylvania for a short while. I recently graduated from massage therapy school and currently develop my craft as a photographer shooting mostly nude self-portraiture.

Before this piece was even an idea, an image of myself photographed by Ben London was particularly inspiring to me. The image, erotic in nature, I wanted to somehow recreate and eventually decided on experimenting with acrylics as it was recommended by my best friend to try at least once. This piece is symbolic of change within my art. It represents the merging of a new medium with my love for both posing and painting vibrant abstractions; a consolidation, a transformation.”
