Ladies' Choice is about sass, succulence, and poise. It is fierce delicacy: soft yet sculpted curves of luscious flesh glimmering in the mystery of tender musculatures, buttery thighs, and dark stares. It is monstrous beauty combined with attitude, style and grace. It is the exquisite satisfaction of something sturdy, real, and authentic. It's flaunting that bitchin' bod with a penetrating, almost sordid gaze from under heavily caked lashes. It's bodacious, it's nasty-- flaunt it.

Christine Stormberg is a real woman. Born and raised in good ol' Omaha, she will spit in your soup but tuck you into bed at night. Authentic, sexy, strong-- she's the one your mother warned you about. Inspired by the creamy thighs of bus drivers and the dangerous beauty of the extreme, she uses many thin layers of paint to create her deliciously textured portraits. Animal qualities found in humans, human qualities found in animals. Skin, saliva, hair and fat. Monster beauty. She believes in real women and real butter. Get on board.
