Tariq's portrait

Summer, 2012

Tariq is an architect. His wife wanted to give him a very special present which would celebrate his career, his family and their life together. I used a mixture of stationery and images of the buildings he has designed together with cuttings and packaging from some of his 'favourite things.'  Creating the headdress was an interesting challenge.  I found some images of mosaic tiling in a design magazine, which worked really well.
