Jane Perkins, from Exeter got an idea to create colourful paintings from junks in 2006 after she wrote a thesis about recycling materials to use them for art. 

The artist used broken jewellery, buttons and toy parts that she bought from second-hand shops and recycling centres to create her ‘junk art’ paintings.

Later she started to create colourful portraits of famous people like Queen Elizabeth II, Albert Einstein, Barack Obama and Winston Churchill.

I really love the idea of junk art because we can create beautiful items and save the earth from rubbish and junk at the same time.

I think that junk art artists are very creative people.
