Artist's statement

My portrait photography self-consciously mines the tropes of classical portraiture. This photograph of writer, performer and Renaissance woman, Fiona Scott-Norman, evokes iconic portraits of Elizabeth I, but hopes to subvert the iconography with an unexpected, arresting, otherworldliness.
