The Stella Series is a collection of portraits inspired by and in homage to my grandmother Stella Mackie (nee Oldfield) who was an oil on canvas portrait artist for most of her life. Over time, I've come to realize that is she who is my biggest inspiration in becoming a professional creative artist, first as a makeup artist and now as a photographer. As an independent young woman well ahead of her time in the 1920s, Stella put herself through art school by modelling for Vogue Magazine and painting commissioned portraits of people and heads of companies.
