Using such a prosaic material as the front pages of daily newspapers, Canadian paper artist Dion creates fabulous works of art. In particular, with the help of a sharp blade and imagination, she turns newspapers into the magic patterned fabrics. Miriam graduated from the Department of Fine Arts and Design, University of Quebec with MA in Visual and Media Arts in 2014. Working with old editions of the newspapers «Financial Times», «The International Herald Tribune» and «Le Devoir», she carves out intricate paper resembling antique lace patterns. Fastened in the web that can cover an entire wall, the newspapers are similar to samples of complex design textiles.
