Posthumous

Posthumous portraits are a unique challenge, often made at a difficult time in the lives of those left behing, and require great sensitivity. I have made many such portraits - of husbands, wives, children, beloved teachers, people who gave their lives in service and more. Usually these are painted combining many reference sources and often using body doubles to create vibrant poses.


In each case, it has been truly touching to see the pleasure of family and friends seeing their loved one vividly captured in the midst of life.
