@turboandgunther’s Mom contacted me about wanting a portrait made of her angel boy, Turbo. Memorial portraits are some of my favorites due to the honor that I feel creating something beautiful for the family that misses their baby.

For this piece, Turbo’s Mom requested I capture his smile (check his photos out - he had one of the best corgi smiles out there!), his vibrant and youthful coloring, and that he be set in a beach theme!
+
Once I learned that his family lived off of New England’s beaches, I immediately thought back to trips as a kid to Boston and seeing all the colorful lobster buoys at the harbor. I hung them from a rope frame (with hand embossed and etched patterns on each length if you zoom in), put some starfish and scallop shells in a sandy beach below, and I topped it all off with some actual sand scattered on the beach and buoys.
+
His finished portrait just makes me so happy not only because of his infectious smile, but with how much I know it will be loved when Turbo’s family can have another little reminder of him in their home again. 🐚⛵️#TurbosBeachDay

"Paper Portraits" made in the fall of 2016 then adapted for my senior thesis show "Hey. Do you have a minute?" •
This piece feels relevant because I've been getting back into paper making. In this piece, I collected paper trash from a couple friends of mine. Some were very close friends, I was an Resident Assistant in college and so one was from my resident and another was from my staff member, etc. I took their paper trash and made it into one sheet of paper. Each page was a type of portrait of the person. You could see remnants from a ginger ale bottle or old notes from a chemistry class. I then accompanied the pages with a soundtrack. The MP3 player (was meant to be my Walkman but it broke right before my show opened) held a song for each page. Some literally just sounded like a song from the radio. One was me singing a-long edited over the song. One was me humming a tune. Each referenced that person. Some were in ways only I would get and maybe that person would get.
I really really love portraiture, and I had so much fun abstracting the idea of what a portrait could be in this piece.
