Katie McCann

Katie McCann is an English Collage Artist currently living and working in Berkeley, California.


With just a pair of scissors Katie 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 foxed with age she cuts out images, categorizes them and then 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 USA and in Europe; she has illustrated book and album covers and her artwork is a part of the 60 Box Public Art Project in the City of Berkeley. She is also one of 50 female collage artists to appear in the book Collage by Women: 50 Essential Contemporary Artists (Promopress Editions, 2019).
