Story

Story

Look closely and you will see tiny stories unfolding, like thier new life together. - Dolan Geiman

It is always such a joy to create a custom work (or works!) for clients. When this dynamic duo reached out to request a set of his-and-her portraits to celebrate their wedding, I was thrilled for the opportunity to create some brand new characters in their likeness -- highly-stylized, of course.

These collages were developed in consultation with the clients over several months, then hand-framed in matching salvaged tin frames.

Look closely and you will see tiny stories unfolding, like their new life together, little tidbits of personal motifs, imagery and character.

Each Dolan Geiman collage is crafted from hand-cut vintage papers sourced over decades of exploration and careful categorizing, held dearly until the perfect piece arrives to claim their colors and texture. Learn more about the making of paper collages here.
