She used to call herself a “bodypainting photographer” but found out that the label didn’t really cover the multi-faceted  media she works with. Her signature style are nude, body-painted figures photographed in the modernist effect. Shay still works with a traditional wet darkroom and uses a 35mm manual camera, which is a refreshing change in this digital age. She is also known by her devientArt handle “Purplesea”.
