Carme Magem

Awesome collage artist, Carme Magem, uses recycled materials, newspaper and oil paint to create captivating pieces! Her latest work is based around the cinema, featuring glamorous stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. I love the glamorous women and texture the collage creates!
