Artist Statement:
In addition to her commercial endeavors, B. pursues fine art projects regularly and with great passion. A recent body of work, “Alter Eros,” explored the grand order of nature, the amazing colors, textures, rhythms of the botanical world and its marked resemblance to our own human form. It has been exhibited in NYC, Delaware and Pennsylvania in solo exhibitions. Currently she is working on a socially conscious multi-media documentary project honoring same-sex couples in long-term relationships. The project “First Comes Love” is a series of black and white portraits and video interviews of couples who have been together for a number of years.
