The Red Lie

I chose to hide behind
The Red Lie

Until the truth began eating away
At the fabric of . . .
My beautiful deception

Pulling at the tattered tapestry of . . .
My life

I’m a self-taught photographic artist. My art explores my
internal landscapes, wherein, i explore; survivor issues, spirituality and sexuality. Much of my work is comprised of self-portraits. My intent with my creations is to be one of the connecting threads in the universal fabric we share.

    The touch of red on your eyes, lips, nails and in the ribbon, ehhance your beautiful pale skin with the tulle accentuating the dark backdrop……..this is an amazing portrait……..of contrasts and beauty, deceptive but maybe on the surface, rather than underneath………
    Gorgeous work……….!!
