American artist Sandhi Schimmel Gold artistically utilizes the recycled paper and transforms them into beautiful mosaic work.How innovative can you be with the cards, photographs, newspaper and other paper objects? Eventually, the paper item ends up becoming part of the bin surely? The handmade mosaics are a work of thousands of recycled Christmas cards, newspapers, postcards, junk mails and business cards. The mosaic is an explicit masterpiece which show a vivid and aesthetic appeal.

These images inspire my work, the bold section of colour is what I need to achieve to recreate Georgia’s paintings into collage, separating darker tones from lighter skin tones, however still keeping detail like Sandhi’s work. I love the recycled appropriated material used in all her images as well, maybe I could take a leaf out of her book with the use of squares in the collage, they look really creative yet effective.
