Description

Life is remembered in bits and pieces and my hope is to create not only a portrait, but a memory

There are so many reasons to capture a memory and this is a unique way to hold onto the things that may fade in memory but can live on forever through art.

The portrait will be done on a pre shrunk canvas suitable for framing.
I hand cut all my stencils, which are then rendered over a background of print

I need one or two (or more, please convo) high quality head shots. Casual works the best. You can e-mail me those in jpeg form or send me a scannable hard copy. Less formal pictures are best and slight profiles are good also.

This listing is for an 11"x14" canvas portrait. If you would like a multiple portrait on a larger canvas please convo me so we can work out the details. The example of a multiple (the three boys in aviators) is on a 14"x19" canvas.

In order to personalize the collage I would like as much information about you or the subject of the photo as possible.

I use encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other ephemera resources to create the backgrounds for my collages and I try to match these resources to the subject as well as possible.

"Maddie these turned out sooo well. You are freaking amazing!!"

The rarity of combing my two faves- beatniks and robots. Not since Botnik have I seen such splendor. (Fast service, too!)
