Dawn Maciocia is a well renowned torn paper collage artist from Scotland. With a great love of birds and animals she creates quirky and colourful designs from her studio. Using quality acrylics and inks and applying various mark making techniques to make her own paper designs before collaging Dawn then plays with colour and texture before layering. She prefers not to use scissors but instead tears the papers into shape so they have a more sculptural feel to them. She combines her painted papers with found materials like stamps, tea bags, sweet wrappers and old letters to create a truly original work of art.
