A collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a work of formal art, primarily in the visual arts, made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
A collage may include newspaper clippings, ribbons, bits of colored or hand-made papers, portions of other artwork, photographs, a piece of moss or even a dead mole and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. The origins of collage can be traced back hundreds of years, but this technique made a dramatic reappearance in the early 20th century as an art form of novelty.
The term collage derives from the French "coller" meaning "glue". This term was coined by both Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in the beginning of the 20th century when collage became a distinctive part of modern art.

She is 35 years old female with a very creative mind. I noticed her for the frist time, when an invitations of an event on facebook appear on my notifications. it's called "A Poskart Projekt", art on poskart. I get curios about the event and the currator, so i follow the link and go to her blog. Suddenly i get WOW-ed and amazed by her fancy blog. She is really good and sooooo talented (no wonder she being asked to do an art exhibition by RURU Gallery). So sad I can't attend this art exhibition :(
I check her blog and read all the archives. Every piece of the art that she working on was so great. I love her collage style (I know nothing 'bout collage -_-). The piece I love the most is this
