Aurelia Burnham, a native New Yorker, is

currently an active member of the vibrant artist

community of Philadelphia.  In addition to her original

works, Aurelia is often commissioned to produce portraits 

based on photographs provided by her clients.  Drawing from her

technical skill and knowledge of anatomy, she recreates

the images of her subjects (not the photographs themselves) with a 

life-like, painterly naturalism that surpasses photo-realism.
