COLLAGE:  Flat or very low relief.

MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE:  Moderate relief and/or different techniques and materials.

ASSEMBLAGE:  Highly dimensional, multiple three-dimensional elements, and/or freestanding.

DIGITAL COLLAGE:  Combination of multiple images. Digital manipulation of single image does not qualify.


Connections are everywhere: people, emotional, spatial, graphic, spiritual, electrical, travel. Creativity is in the putting together of what you already know in a way that creates something different by the combination of any type of elements. Ideas may start with one seed that grows as you connect and transform them into unique images to reveal your artistic vision and truth. Subject matter is open for you to develop in your own style: mixed media, analog, digital, assemblage, narrative or abstract. Make your connections and let your mind run free!
