I am a visual communicator by trade. I love the graphic side of visual communication and work constantly to explore new ways of communicating my vision through graphic design. I have been working on a series of digital collages for the past year. I look for old ephemera at local book and antique stores. My process begins with scanning the pieces I find and that I consider essential to create my art. Once the pieces are scanned, I proceed to clean the images and create PNGs of each piece separately. I use Photoshop and Illustrator to put together my collages. I combine the vintage ephemera with graphic elements such as typography, and geometric figures.
