Gypsy Baby, digital collage
This digital collage uses a vintage image of June Havoc, sister of Gypsy Rose Lee. The photo spoke to me; her rehearsed pose, her little girl hands.
I mix old and new, object and abstract. This piece was an exploration of transparency in digital tools. I often saturate the colors, giving the subject an otherworldly element, dreamlike.
The background branch-like shapes are abstracts of one of my beaded necklace photographs.
