“Mixed Media Personality Portrait” by Emma Mullender

I wanted a unique and memorable present for my mum after a particular trying year. Emma’s personality portrait did not disappoint! Emma guided me with thoughts & ideas throughout the process & accommodated a couple of last minute additions. My mum is over the moon with the portrait (as am I) & I would recommend Emma to anyone wanting something really special.

The Brief

I was asked to make a ‘Faceless Personality Portrait’ by my friend Ruth, for her mother for Christmas. Fortunately I already had the bonus of my friends mother, Annie, being a fan of my work, so that was one thing less to worry about! A request for a vibrant and quirky collage, in a medium sized, gold or brown chunky frame with all Annie’s favourite things, which included……….

The Process

I found a lovely double mounted frame in the charity shop, and because it was double mounted it gave depth, allowing me to make a 3d collage that was still protected my glass. It was first Personality Portrait that was ‘Faceless’ and was definitely trickier than one with a face, but I got there in the end!
