Artist of the Month

December Artist

Joan Ladendorf


I enjoy collecting digital images with my camera—textures, backgrounds, skies—and then collaging them together into “undiscovered creatures”, “alien landscapes” and abstracts. I draw the shapes by hand in Photoshop, then extract them from the different photographs, and assemble them in layers to create a single digital image. Making use of Photoshop’s tools, I add lighting effects and dimensional qualities. The final image is printed on archival photographic paper and mounted on wood panels, then finished with a matte varnish. Please visit my website for more images—
