Portraits - Shop Update

Customizable collages and oil paintings now for sale on my Etsy! I'm so so excited about them.

The idea is for people to send me a photograph (or several, and I'll pick one) which I will render into a stencil, and then use that stencil to create a portrait either in mixed media collage or oil paint, similar the ones above. Obviously, for oils, colors are completely customizable. For collages, I am open to the inclusion of any materials, but generally tend to use found paper and other found odds and ends. I think these would be great presents for the holidays.
