Framed ReMastered Portraits
During my career I have done a lot of work based on portraits and separate bodies of work involving patterns. With these paintings, the two interests merge.

I paint patterns with oil paint applied onto prints of historical portraits. The patterns shift the imagery toward a contemporary vocabulary. These remastered portraits create a dialogue with the work of artists from the past.

Matting and framing are integral parts of each painting and complete each piece . . . Matting is created with textured fabrics or my old paintings. A wood frame is assembled with mini tongue & groove joinery.
