Genes Reunited is a celebration of 21 women and girls on my mothers side who share my great, great, great grandmother.

 

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II  is a portrait which celebrates her life thus far. I have used in excess of 50 photographs of her ranging from a toddler of 3 years old to 88 years young. Using digital painting, and augmentation & aggregated techniques my intention was to produce a timeless, beautiful portrait of her that reflected her very essence rather than a static representation of her in all of her finery.
