New Portrait – Jazz-minh Moore

This is my recent portrait of fine artist Jazz-Minh Moore who just had a wonderful solo show of her work at Lyons Weir Gallery in NYC. A glowing review of the show will be coming out in the spring issue of Whitewall Magazine.

I originally met Jazz-min through Facebook when she started a page for 90+year old singer and artist Ilona Smithkin and used two of my portraits of Ilona as her profile picture. I didn’t realize it at the time but Jazz-minh had met Ilona during her appearance as one of the artists on the last season of Bravo’s Next Great Artist which I do enjoy watching. I started browsing through her many photos on Facebook and thought she would make a great subject for a portrait. I asked if she would like to sit for me and she was into it.  I went to her opening at the beginning of January where we finally met in person.  I saw that many of her paintings had women with long flying hair and since she had long beautiful hair I knew wanted to capture that in her portrait. Armed with my beauty dish and fan this is the result.
