Katie McCann

Wallpaper Puddings is a series of eight, hand-cut collages inspired by English desserts and the pattern designs of William Morris.

 

I have used colors and layers of imagery to convey the texture and taste of the puddings, and symmetry and lush backgrounds form the wallpaper pattern. For a touch of the surreal, spoons and forks are included as are the strange flora and fauna that always exist in my collage wonder world.

 

According to W.S Gilbert, ‘Life is a pudding full of plums”. For me, life is a pudding full of paper.”

 

Katie’s work will be shown in the November 2021 Home & Away group show and is currently available in the Niche Market.

​Katie is an English collage artist currently living and working in Berkeley, California.
