She is hugely talented and has some great ideas and we will incorporate those and bring you fabulous mobile artist interviews, showcases, how to’s and more.

In addition we also have a Flickr Group for this column. We would like to see all your digital art and collages added to this specialised group, we will select images for curation and showcases as well as commentary. This is the link to the Flickr group.
