Statement from the Artist: In my work I strive to create beautiful, meaningful images and objects that inspire imagination and conversation while making an emotional connection with the viewer. The Glitter People are a series of work produced between 2005 and 2010. In this series I paint the models in body paints and glitter and photograph them. The concept behind this series is to visually represent that we all have a light or sparkle inside of us. Some call it a soul or life force. As every individual is different so the Glitter People are different with varying colors and textures representing the unique beauty and energy that lies inside everyone.
