This is from a series of work using vintage photographs of people I found mostly at antique shops and flea markets. I liked to imagine and create stories regarding these characters. I was inspired by organic elements to create surreal landscapes that built narratives about who these people were. This work was also Inspired by my love of mail, stamps and old fashioned correspondence- letters and postcards. I like to include a stamp in each painting as if it were a letter from a long time ago.
