Art Description

Photography: Digital, Manipulated and Color on Paper.

“The Awakening” focuses on familial bonds, motherhood, fatherhood & celebration of childhood. Loosely inspired by the work of Marianne Stokes whose portraits often showed the fine details of garments that were floor length and embroidered.

​My camera remains my primary tool of communication, while my constant exploration of diverse ways of expression moves me to add several different layers using a variety of mediums. After a portrait session is complete, I typically digitally manipulate my subjects and unite them with other photographic components to achieve a work that is a new photographic expression (often lending to them the eyes of someone their elder). Thereafter, I may montage antique patterns and textures, vintage botanical and wildlife illustrations or hand drawn digital illustration. If I feel I am not yet complete, after each portrait is refined and printed, I may combine paint and gilding adding ornamental elements inspired by 19th century artworks.
