A portrait must be more than a face and a stance.  A person is a package made of our entire presentation; our grooming, clothes and all things which we have arranged around us be it an office cubicle or an entry into a fictional doll’s house competition.  To produce a contemporary portrait we must show the sum of a man or woman and allow for a more encompassing view.  As artists we must present the world that we believe the sitter has or would make for themselves.  Display the person, not the pose.
