"The way Stedman paints is just as organic as her subject matter.


She doesn’t meticulously mix colors, but instead throws the paints onto the parchment and allows the colors to mix.


For the dark skin of the male ... Stedman threw down yellow and purple and allowed the complementary colors to mingle and create brown.”

Storytelling, an integral part of my nudes, is a part of life, intrinsic to most cultures. Stories help people make sense of the world.


While the nude transcends time, the telling of stories too is as basic to human beings as eating.


Maybe more so, since while food allows us to live, stories are what make our lives worth living.
