My work is based on the body; I am always creating portraits whether the model is physically in front of me or not. This piece is from a series that has moved away from my more clinical nude portraits to portray allegorical/dreamy presences. I was thinking about the power of the Crone archetype and the sensual beauty of hair as lived experience, as unbridled energy.
