the Curiosity portrait
Your story without words
These heirloom paintings, created on commission, are painted specifically for individual women. I gather photos of the individual woman and interview her to learn about her life and what makes her unique. I then go back to my studio and find symbols and elements from my interview notes that I will then use in my preliminary sketches. After brainstorming creative ways to combine the various imagery into elements in her fashion and throughout the painting, I begin...
“It’s so cool because I feel like my life is a storybook, that my experiences and the details of my life are more than just subtle memories, but a vibrant part of who I am!”
