The Awakening

“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. As
with all of my current work, the production of this series began
with a portrait sitting. Photographs are the first layer of which I
manipulate and unite with other photographic components.
Thereafter, I may add over-lappings of gold leaf, paint, digital
collage, antique art and/or hand drawn digital/illustration.
