In 2009 Catrin Welz-Stein started to create digital images by collaging old illustrations and photographs.
At the same time she discovered online social networks and her private images were then open to the public.
The positive responses Catrin got there were her motivation to go on with her art until now.
Catrin Welz-Stein graduated in Darmstadt, Germany, and then worked for several advertising agencies in Germany, United States and Switzerland.
Today is happily mom and creator of some of the most vivid illustrations I've ever seen.
I have to be honest and say that I was never fond collages, often the images are not homogeneous, and most of the time I struggle to understand the meaning of the image and to grasp the idea that the artist wants to convey.
The digital illustrations of Catrin Welz-Stein are another thing, they seem to have been created for stir something they are modern but still smell like the pages of old books.
Much of the work of German graphic designer is looking for a vintage material taken from old books, magazines, photographs and even the internet, free material and no longer protected by copyright which you can work, then once you have found the appropriate image manipulates, crop and fotoritocca to obtain new material to be mixed carefully to achieve the beautiful surreal images that you see below.
