About the Artist

With just a pair of scissors, Katie McCann creates intricate, hand cut collages which reflect her Victorian obsession with faeries, flora and fauna. From her extensive collection of books, prints and pages that are antique, forgotten and often foxed with age, McCann cuts out images, categorizes them and then eventually pieces them together like a complex paper jigsaw puzzle. Katie McCann’s collages are places where beauty is strange, creatures are curious and a sense of wonder prevails.
