Artist Statement 

To experience nudity as a subject, or behold it as an observer, requires immense courage. In Naked Unafraid I have attempted to capture transient moments of vulnerability and fearlessness in the face of a rigid society. My work is an exploration of the honesty and trust needed to share one’s most intimate self with the world, and to witness and appreciate it as an onlooker.

In these paintings I use bright vibrant brushstrokes to shed light on the experience that is often reserved for the shadows to highlight the audacity of nudity in the contemporary world. These works are fleeting glimpses of beauty and boldness that would otherwise be confined to the darkness.
