Found Objects Art Mosaics by Jane Perkins

Mona Lisa, after Da Vinci

The Mona Lisa. Highly recognizable. 
But you may not have seen her interpreted quite like this! 
A conglomeration of little what-nots arranged in a mosaic.
On closer inspection, you'll see the likes of, to "B" specific:
 buttons, bananas, Bristle Blocks, beads, bubble wands and Barbie arms!

Jane Perkins creates phenomenal art by selecting each doodad from her collection,
finding just the right item in just the right shade, then placing it in just the right spot.

Jane finds most of her tiny treasures at flea markets and yard sales.
How about this example of reusing, recycling, and re-purposing?

A quote she used on her website, so very apropos, is this one from David Mach, sculptor:
"Every artist needs to find the right material through which he can express himself."
I do believe that Jane has found hers!
