Art with a new Purpose

If you haven’t heard of zJayne, you haven’t heard of one of my favorite recycling/repurpose artists. What repurpose means is to take a product that had a former life, and give it a new purpose. In zJaynes’ case she takes all sorts of embellishments from jewelry findings, to vintage collage pieces, and other materials and turns them into altered art dolls. zJayne also has an entire line of recycled bags made from–get this—t-shirts! I love that zJayne is giving items a new life and saving them from being part of an already over-burdened trash heap. She proves that old does not equal junk, and a that having good eye combined with technique makes a successful artist.

Here’s my latest favorite Altered Art Doll Assemblage by zJayne called “Madonna Noire” It’s absolutely exquisite!
