The Challenger collection amps up the dramatics and absurdity that I enjoy infusing into my works by positioning confidently posed subjects in front of a backdrop that articulates or complements the subject's expression with an almost patronizing design. The first in the collection is Silent Storm, a woman whose bewitching gaze bares the power of conjuring a fabulous storm. As such, Silent Storm can be described as harnessing the power of storm clouds and despair.
