Every human mind contains hidden rooms that house our ability to dream, imagine and embark on flights of fancy. These are the spaces where you can create freely in a shower of ideas. German artist Catrin Welz-Stein’s dreamlike digital art embodies such places and awakens them in delighted onlookers.

The two covers in our softcover Free Your Mind series reproduce iconic works Welz-Stein created between 2010 and 2013. Here you can see her influences from classic children’s literature as well as surrealism and folklore.

Welz-Stein uses old images and illustrations and combines them in fascinating collages, retouching, adding and removing elements to create something entirely new.
