"I am a self taught artist in the medium of handcut paper collage. My art is quixotic, vibrant romantic and otherworldly. My love of all things natural and romantic are combined to create dream worlds outside of reality. The pieces display ethereal and intangible women to produce a heretofore unseen union of past with present.
Images are combined with intricate pattern, rich texture and vibrant color. The qualities and concepts embodied by butterflies, flowers and birds infuse these pieces with the rich symbolism of the natural world. My subjects dream of flight, like the birds they see, change and transform themselves, as do the moths, caterpillars and butterflies they are with. There is a flowering of self. In this way I celebrates the loveliness and liveliness of women. I call these images of vivid color and intricate detailed pattern "Dream Images.”

Give The Gift of Unique
I am Kanchan Mahon, a self taught artist working in the medium of hand-cut paper collage. The art is unusual and unique and I believe this is a result of my having no art education.
