Each of these pieces starts as a photograph that is printed, crumbled and re-photographed. I make a drawing separately using pen and ink, photograph it and digitally add it to the composition in the last step. The final, layered piece reveals gaps and exaggerations in perception. Each finished portrait is each two feet wide by four feet long.
