After acquiring a computer, I discovered graphic software and the world of digital art. I started taking online classes related to Photoshop and art. Then, I enrolled in some traditional art classes taught by a professional artist. I began to mix traditional art techniques using graphic software to create visual art.
I blend images together by using a combination of collage, composite, and painting skills. I love digitally altering the world you are familiar with and creating unique landscapes. By mixing items that do not belong together and altering reality, I hope to spark your imagination and tell a visual 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.
I create landscape art using a desktop computer, graphic software and imagination. I do not use AI to create art. My studio is a combination of office and library. As a digital composite/collage artist, my art is stored on hard drives, so I do not need a large area.

When I am not doing art, I like working in my garden, getting ready for winter. A friend gave me the metal trough and I just got someone to drill holes in the bottom for me. I did a fall colored flamingo piece called Flamingo Night. It was very orange, so I've been working on a new flamingo composition.
