Megan Coyle is an artist and illustrator based in Washington, D.C. She creates amazing art using old magazine pages that already have colorful photos and images. She calls them "found color". Her work that looks like paintings from distance reveal small details on a closer inspection. She is amazing with creating detail work in her collages, check out the feathers on the owl and scales on the iguana.

She hand-cuts tiny pieces of paper based on colors and patterns and then carefully arranges them into animals, people and landscapes. She has exhibited her artwork at the Ward Museum, Smithsonian Ripley Center, Art League Gallery, Krempp Gallery, and other galleries around the country. Her work has been published in Washington Post, Somerset Studio, and Papirmasse.
