A simple pun, I know. Our lovely Stella embraces the modern challenge with determination. The modern challenge.....? Keeping up with rapidly changing expectations, being academic, efficient, social, romantic, researching, enquiring, available, discreet, professional, and all whilst maintaining a straight spine!!! Let's face it, we're all naked underneath our clothes. Stella is a great friend of mine. She is everywoman in a Mona Lisa kind of way. She is perfect and imperfect at the same time. I created Stella naked and free of hair to preserve her freedom to be whom ever she wishes. She is not defined by her clothes, her hair style, her religion, race, or status. She just is. Without our clothes and our masks, we are all as naked, imperfect and perfect as Stella. She embodies an unapologetic rejection of the beauty myth. Watching Stella is like knowing every thing we know about ourselves including some of the stuff we don't want everyone else to know. Hand drawn with ink and brush.
