My last digital collage was made in February of 2016 and since then I have strictly cut and paste all created pieces.
Prior to going “analog” I did a little of both. When I decided to go full on with collaging back in 2015 I did start out digitally creating pieces. That reason was because I didn’t have the heart to cut and destroy books and magazines I had found. I had several rules when digitally creating: photograph what I find, don’t use well recognized pieces, and create in a 13×13 inch 300dpi Photoshop canvas.
I’m now approaching a full year of physical pieces and I do find it rewarding working this way. After I create something the piece exists and I can hold it. The limitations of creating analog have pushed my creatively as well.
My first “collage”.. from 1994 or 1995.. I was either 16 or 17 years old and at the time I was going through a “punk” phase and listening to a lot of Black Flag, flipper, Agent Orange and Social Distortion.

My instagram account did grow in 2016.
2016 is ending soon.. for those of us in Southern California. I look forward to the new year and things to come.
Time ran out for her.
This, for now, is my biggest piece. Due in part to the background.
