Jane Perkins’ New Work

One of my favorite artists has posted 2 pieces of her new work. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Jane Perkins, she makes exquisite works of art out of recycled materials. I have featured her before and always do when she has new work to show. Enjoy:


I would never have the patience to do this work! So beautiful!!!



Art, a la Jane Perkins

Jane Perkins is one of my All-Time Favorie artists. She recycles all sorts of small stuff (read: junk) to create fabulous art. I frequently showcase her art and thought it was time to show it again. These images came from her “Year in Review” post. Please follow the link to her blog. You won’t be sorry!!  Her art is for sale and she does commissions – click on her name to find out more info! If I win the PowerBall, I’m going to commission her to do portraits of my furbabies!!!


I love the fact that she posted this picture. ALL artists have creative issues at times. Gives me hope. The completed art follows.


Amazing, right?

Team Parada. A beautiful face with elaborately styled hair.

I didn't get the team name, but this exquisite white chalk portrait was one of my favorite pieces at Festa in Little Italy!

Bijan Masoumpanah. This chalk art seems to depict a classic sculpture of a bearded head.

Lidia F. Vasquez. Wow! This elaborate mask is super inventive! It's formed out of elements from Balboa Park's unique architecture!

Faithful Ambassadors Bible Baptist Academy. Cherry blossoms courtesy of the Japanese Friendship Garden! Is this awesome, or what?


This one is my absolute favorite – the skull looks like it is sitting on the street!!

Killer Queens. Dinosaur skull represents what one is likely to see at the Natural History Museum in Balboa Park.
