Sitting down with a glass or two of wine,  David told me his life story.
All was subject to complete client confidentiality and so I felt free to ask any questions - this brought back memories he had not thought of for a long time.
We looked at old photographs, artworks and momentos -
I asked if David wanted the images in his composition to be obvious to the viewer or triggers for his own memories only -
he said “both”.
Anything in particular you would like to see in your Icon?

'Dancing Through Life'
A biographical icon

I then took my notes and pictures away and came up with a line drawing for him to approve.

He gave me a diamond for one of the stars and the rest were vintage french crystals. Gold and palladium leaf,  a pearl from Hawaii - I placed things precious to him in the picture and it now hangs as a memory of the best and the bravest of times.

If you would like an unorthodox icon or a miniature - just email me via my contact page.
