I do not take credit for any of the beautiful photography used in the collages (all rights reserved to the original photographers). But I had an episode where someone took my collage off my site and was using them for their own (hence the 'copyright' signature).
I started collaging on an arts retreat my senior year of high school, as a exercise of patience and contemplation, and have been doing it as a hobby ever since. Whenever I see images, textures, or words that speak to me, I cut them out of a magazine, book, etc. I keep all the clippings, and then create collages from the pieces.
These pieces are simply here to demonstrate some of my artistic abilities, not for sale.
