I do digital art. Unlike traditional artists, I use a computer and software to create my art. Like traditional collage artists, I build my art layer by layer, starting with a photo, color, or pattern that inspires me. I am influenced by scenes in nature, images of space, and vintage objects.
I take parts of different photos, create digital papers, and use digital brushes in a combination of layering and painting to create a digital collage/composites. All my images blend together to tell a new story, to take something that is familiar and turn it into something that only exists in my imagination.
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.
