Cassia Beck

Brighton, sussex

I am a paper collage artist using a mix of found and vintage papers. I hand cut my elements, using them to tell a new story. Colourful shapes create movement and direction. I am drawn to damaged paper with stains, rips and hand writing from the past. These marks often dictate my compositions.

The story behind the business
Meet Cassia Beck

My collage history goes much further back than I realised. During my A Levels, I chose to study the magnificent Peter Blake and created a series of mixed media pieces using collage and paint. I wrote him a letter and he replied!

Further back as a child, I enjoyed destoying books and creating new outfits and make up for the characters. Later, letters to friends involved collaging the envelopes and finding more inventive ways of posting the notes, like old cigarette boxes with images glued to them to amuse the postman.

I was nudged in the direction of ceramics because I was good at it so I chose to do my degree in workshop ceramics but my heart wasn’t in it. I was making collages in my room in my spare time. Having my children allowed me space to explore what I really wanted to do and collage made it’s way back between naps.
