Recycled art by Jane Perkins made out of buttons, shells, toys and discarded waste
Jane Perkins creates art out of discarded or once loved objects that have since been forgotten. Everything from buttons, toys and jewellery to old shells and beads.
Inspired by impressionist art and famous portraits, she loves to recreate some of the most famous paintings by using lots of small objects to make up a picture. These objects are often collected from charity shops, car boot sales or recycling centres.
She'll often start by trying to match the colours, before finding the most appropriate shapes to suit each brushstroke or pixel. Calling herself a 're-maker', Jane's background lies in textiles but she now predominantly works with plastic. Look closely at these recent masterpieces and you'll spot just about anything you could imagine.
