I was a registered nurse for many years and always turned to doing something creative to relax. After acquiring a computer, I discovered graphic software and the world of digital art. I also started taking painting classes taught by a local artist and learning more about graphic software through online classes and tutorials.
I blend images together by using a combination of collage, composite and painting techniques. I love digitally altering the world you are familiar with and creating unique visual art that sparks your imagination and tells a new story.
What is collage and composite art?
Traditional Collage: a technique of composing art by assembling various materials that normally do not go together, like photos, handmade papers, things from nature, and found objects to create something new.
Digital collage is visual art with a modern take on traditional collage using a computer and software like Photoshop and Affinity Photo. Photos, scanned items, digital papers and digital brushes are all modern counterparts of components used in traditional collage. Just like traditional collage, digital collage is made of many layers coming together in the creation of an original and unique piece of art.
Then what is digital composite art? Digital compositing is a form of visual art that digitally assembles two or more images to make new altered image that blends together, Digital collage is created by layering together virtual image pieces from various sources into a new piece of art that has a common theme but does not create a seamless blend of images. Similar, yet with subtle differences. My art blends composite and collage techniques along with traditional art values to create something original and unique.

Rose was inspired by the colors in a photo of roses I had taken. I decided to make some changes by adding some real roses. Still wip. Two more digital composite/collage art pieces I am working on.
