Vintage Portraiture

This spring, I debuted a new collection of  my Handmade Silkscreen Prints. Portraiture has become a passion of mine over the years, I love capturing interesting subjects and faces.

The show was a great chance to show off a larger body of work together as a group. The Venue (Modern Manor) has lots of eclectic furniture space, so my Silkscreens fit right in with the overall style. Like most of my personal art, the subjects are always changing. I have many interests and therefore travel in many directions, but the common thread through this series are the expressive faces.

THE PORTRAITS IN THIS COLLECTION

Buffalo Nickel: Late 19th century portraits have always been a fascination of mine

Many thanks to Lucas Ruiz for his efforts and Modern Manor for hosting the show and their great support.  Looking forward to the next one!
