Vahge was born in the quiet suburbs just south of Baltimore, where her neighbours had perfectly kept lawns and watchful eyes.  An isolated child with few friends, she withdrew to her imagination for entertainment and solace. Her early years were spent befriending muppets, making up stories, and slowly constructing a three-storied, twenty-five roomed Barbie house. She began making collages one summer during a bout of restless obsession in the company of a philosophical feline and a consortium of colourful characters.

A self taught artist, Vahge moved to Brooklyn, NY in the fall of 2007, where she currently lives and works. Her collages have shown in London, Italy, New York, California, New Jersey, Miami, and Santa Fe, NM.  She has provided promotional artwork for the Dresden Dolls, and artwork to Universal Records for Katharine McPhee's 2010 holiday album.
