Taylor gives a new look to basic black and white with a hint of sparkle to dress up for either day or night.
Taylor is a mix of silver, black, white, and silver glitter. Created July of 2020, Taylor went through a few changes over the months- first embellished with some extra sequins, I opted to go for a more minimal look.
I left the signature gold for a darker, nighttime feel with the Taylor- it felt like we were slowly moving downtown from the Upper West Side as I painted her.
Jonathan and Madison came after Taylor, introducing a new collection and brand new feeling- one I embraced after going back to New York. Letting go of old insecurity and fear was a brand-new feeling as I walked through Central Park, visited my old building, and caught up with old friends.
The Ugly Ducking statue felt symbolic, as it made me think about the feelings of self doubt I had that couldn't be covered up with gold paint and a red lipstick smile. Sometimes, you have to dig deep and face the thinks that scare you to come back out into the light.
