When I first saw the original picture of this elegant Victorian woman, I was impressed with the composition and the visual integrity of her appearance. Clearly, she is being presented as a wealthy and confident person. As an artist looking at this image, I imagine it would only take a change of wardrobe to bring her forward in time. With that in mind, I isolated and pixilated her figure to allude to our current digital age while leaving her surrounding environment unaltered. My intention was to present her as a modern woman, no matter what era she lived in.
