I am a largely self-taught digital collage artist. Although I was always interested in art, I searched for a way to express myself until I discovered collage, and ultimately, digital collage. My collages are influenced by my love of the art and architecture of the past, but also by my interest in travel, history, and mythology. I select vintage texts, images, and textures, recombining them in new ways. I strive to make my finished pieces both visually appealing as well as atmospheric, evoking a specific mood.
