Recently I have become very concerned about the issue of climate change and how it is effecting the ocean. My digital collages have explored the beauty and serenity of sea shells and seashores with photography and scanned acrylic painting. Because of this work, it was an easy transition for me to make a statement using similar digital techniques, and visual elements of sea creatures and bodies of water.
This digital collage series started with a simple photograph of a springtime tree and billowing clouds behind it. With a few experiments in photo manipulation program, I realized that the clouds also took on the shape of craters within the appearance of full moons. Eventually, I added elements of water, shells, and flowers to the circular shapes. I was stunned at the visual connections between earth, water, and sky.
