Luma Rouge Member Since April 2010 Artist Statement www.lumarouge.com
Born under a full moon on a hot night in Paris, I spent my childhood dancing at the ankles of artists, burlesque performers and bohemians. One night I was sitting backstage at the Moulin Rouge when a temperamental painter stormed past in a fury, throwing his sketchbook and charcoal to the floor as he left. I picked up the book, pondered the luscious curves of the women walking offstage, and began to draw.
Since that fateful night, I have devoted myself to capturing the beauty and danger of the female form. My favorite subjects are strippers, burlesque dancers and fetish queens — strong, sensual women who’ll keep you on your toes and leave you begging for more.
