Hand made canvas of recycled materials and latex paints by Sandi Billingsley.
This is a close up to show the brush work, also to show how I manipulate the clear coat to create a wet beaded look.
Many years ago I was told that as an artist you are innately toxic to the environment. This worried me because we need a healthy environment and yet I have this compulsion to create. This unlikely marriage of emotions are what drive me and police my work.
I hand made this canvas of recycled materials and coated it with non-toxic and low-no-voc paints
This piece is can be hung vertically or horizontally.
I originally made this plate as an opener for a conversation about luxuriously living sustainability.
The two images of the same piece are to show the effects of change in lighting.
This piece is made of recycled paper and latex materials.
This is one my attempts at expressing the way I see individuals who defend blind faith.
Shell Hinge, this shapey painting is made from recycled paper and cardboard and acrylic paint.

I like to call these paintings “shapeies” because I make the canvas into a unique shape. This shapey is made from used and discarded paper and cardboard and painted with non-toxic plaster and paints.
Here is to the joy of trying to mimic the beauty of nature!

As with most of my personal art this mask is made from recycled materials.
The bulk of it is Junk mail and boxes.
After I sculpted the mask out of the paper pulp and waited forever for it to dry, I painted it with acrylic.
