Abby Heller-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.
