Ghost Portraits .
This project began as a journal of invisible friends while at home during the remote days . Creating repurposed memories and inspired by recalling the non-linear stories of distant family along with the people I have never met . Inventing an alternate family tree of the leaves that have been lost or left behind . The paintings are dressed in costumed colors and adorned things gathered from a memory museum of the times that now seem far away . Creating layers of paint on imagined paper dolls using images and old photographs that have been given to me , collected and saved over the years .
