Medium: Pastel; oil
Style: Contemporary realism
Technique: The artist states: "I am inspired by photographic effects, specifically the manipulation of exposure to create images that look 'real', but contain more than a single still image. In choosing poses, I focus on nuances of body language and expression. It is important to me that the people are presented realistically, showing unidealized beauty and what I think of as a modern sense of confidence in candid moments."
