Marion commissioned me to do several intimate drawings of her. Like all of my friends, she had a choice to wear articles of clothing, underwear, shoes and stockings. Whatever she wanted. She also had a say in whether her face would be visible or not. I like to let the models choose their own poses and by doing so the imagery is different and more natural. My sitters must be themselves. Capturing moments where they are moving and changing poses or positions helps make my drawings become more believable and intimate. It is my goal to have drawings like “Marion reclined” to be viewed differently from the other nude imagery so abundant in today”s contemporary society.
