Digital Collage

The process of making digital collages, which I learned from Jeremy Sutton (see also the account of his visit to The Lair by clicking here), is labor intensive and much fun. One can generate a large number of components for the collage, paint them, draw them,  and meld parts of them into each other and ultimately into the final composite. Collages in digital art involve cutting and pasting (on the computer), painting, using scanned found objects, photographs and drawings just as making collage requires in studio art. The programs I use are Corel Painter, Jasc Software's Paint Shop Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Image Ready, Kai's Power Tools 3, 5 and 6, and other programs; I also employ my HP Scanner, my Sony Digital camera, my computer Titania,  my Wacom pad and pressure sensitive stylus, and my skills learned in  years of studying and pursuing the making of paintings. Ancient documents, samples of friends' handwriting, pictures of ancestors and my classmates, the product of many years of keeping journals, of research into timely subjects, my love of mystery and my fascination with color and texture also play into the collages I create. 

My collage page has some special collages on it, some of which I regard as my heirloom pieces, for they include snippets of my history, ancestors' pictures and my memories. 

 I hope you enjoy them.
