What triggers a memory? A song, a phrase, a familiar face; these are the things that begin the creative process. Using vintage ads, old postcards and photos, I scan and rework these images digitally. As a resource, these pieces are worked into a collage and I create a story about our present day reality. Each piece is inspired by the past, yet speaks to our present day experience.
With a background in the study of art and the meaning of imagery, I have explored how imagery affects and informs us. This work brings to you more than a decorative pretty image. It speaks to how the perception of yourself through vintage imagery inspires and empowers you.
