English Artist Jane Perkins Makes Art of Vintage Junk...That's Recycling...

I had to share this....



This fab portrait of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge was made by an English artist Jane Perkins of junk and found objects....buttons, trinkets, charms, broken bits of this and that!



Winston Churchill as well...I am just amazed. Vintage bits and pieces into new art....there are such clever folks about.

For more of Jane Perkin's art...click HERE for Yahoo news article I found these smashing portraits in!

Also a reminder: Antiques And Teacups has a 15% off sale until Feb. 28th with coupon code LOVE.

  8. Glad you did share this, Ruth! Amazing! Art is perspective - seeing the facets and possibilities of old buttons and legos is a gift, indeed.
