Interested in a portrait of yourself or beloved family member? Consider a contemporary portrait commission by Denver mixed media artist Dolan Geiman. A Christmas surprise, this custom metal wall sculpture was constructed from recycled tin metal, hand-cut with tin snips, while referencing a photo provided by client. The pose and personalized mandolin detail pay tribute to the recipient's favorite hobby. For more examples of this sort of collage portraiture, see the Stockyards Sentinel and pet portraits.

My workshop is chock full of found treasures from adventures across the country. I select a palette of colors from across many mixed materials and get to work, snipping and shaping and applying in careful layers until the perfect piece emerges.
