Sarah Riley is inspired by the human form and all of its diversity and fascination.  Her portraits consist both of faces that she has imagined and people whom she admires for their artistic endeavors and overall significance in her life and in this world.  When Riley creates a portrait of someone, she strives not only to capture a physical likeness, but to also incorporate elements of the subject's personality and demeanor; it proves a unique challenge every time and she absolutely loves it.  Riley's figural work is deeply rooted in the concept of "Body Positivity;" her hope and underlying goal is for the viewers of this series to feel empowered, validated, and secure in their own unique beauty.
