Through the use of my own art and found objects I create unique, handcrafted mixed media collages. You can expect anything from pen, ink, newspaper, bark scans, shibori and batik, knitted fabric structures and whatever else my mind compels me to use in these intuitive creations.
Once I feel the handmade part of my journey has concluded I take to the computer where all of my collages are digitized for further creative manipulation. This part of the process is where I get to combine cut and pasted artwork with my digital imagination.
My collages create an elevated level of mixed media through the combination of hand and digital design. Further digital manipulation of imagery presents an element that is unattainable when only working with physical objects. I love the interest that is created through this process.
