Maria Carluccio’s "washi tape series" began in March of 2016 as part of her “collage a day” sketchbook project. “Washi tape is addictive for me, I find the possibilities endless” she says. Maria's sketchbooks studies explore media and subjects that fascinate her- themes such as as nature, technology, children, fashion and animals just to name a few.
