Katie McCann is an English collage artist currently living and working in Berkeley, CA.
Katie creates intricate, hand-cut collages that reflect her Victorian obsession with faeries, flora and fauna. From her extensive antique collection of books, prints and pages, forgotten and foxed with age, she cuts out images, categorizes them and eventually pieces them together like a complex paper jigsaw puzzle. Her collages are places where beauty is strange, creatures are curious, and a sense of wonder prevails.
Her work has been exhibited across the US and in Europe. Katie has illustrated books and album covers, and her artwork is a part of the 60 Box Public Art Project in Berkeley, CA. She is also one of 50 female collage artists to appear in the book Collage by Women: 50 Essential Contemporary Artists (Promopress Editions, 2019).
