"Empress" from Tarot del Río de las Ánimas Perdidas

I create fictive and allegorical portraits through a fusion of drawing, painting and digital processes. My compositions are “staged” through the process of layering my origianl photographic and hand-rendered imagery with stock photography and digital textures. I utilize experimental printmaking techniques, especially in the play between different surface qualities of ink/paint/pigment, in a final output of 3 prints per image. Final prints are then embellished with hand-applied media, including: ink, gouache, pastel, acrylic and/or enamel.
