Painter Jenny Morgan talks about the process behind her nude self-portraits

I met Jenny Morgan within twelve hours of stepping onto the filthy and gorgeous streets of Manhattan for the first time in 2007. I was assisting Sarah Cass on a photo shoot of one of Jenny's portrait subjects, and I have been following her work religiously since that moment.

This Friday, June 1, the painter returns to her second home, Plus Gallery in Denver, for her latest exhibition, Kith And Kin.
