Natasha Cunningham is a graphic designer and visual artist who creates portrait-focused digital collages incorporating flowers, plants, vibrant colours and textures from her native Jamaica.
Make clean cutouts.
Natasha uses the Quick Selection tool to quickly isolate subjects from their backgrounds until she has a wide variety of imagery to work with.
She scales and rotates her cutouts with handy Transform tools, working on layers in front of and behind the portrait to add depth and interest.
Natasha uses a vibrant, textured shape to highlight the focal point in the collage. Finally, she adds Adjustment layers to fine tune colours and bring it all together.
