Take everyday materials and turn them into exquisite works of art.
Reclaimed Canvas will inspire you to repurpose, reimagine, and reclaim everyday objects—including paint chips, egg shards, pistachio shells, paper bags, dried leaves, and used tea bags—and turn them into eye-catching, clever, and inventive pieces.
Beauty is found in everything, with a little shift in perspective.
Using alternative materials as canvas, this collection sparks creativity, challenging the way people think about the world around them. Artist Ruby Silvious is internationally recognized for her miniature paintings and collages, with used tea bags as her canvas. She is the author of 363 Days of Tea: A Visual Journal on Used Tea Bags. Her paintings—some inspired by her travels around the world—have been featured in numerous publications and on multiple media channels, including CNN Travel, The Guardian, Der Spiegel, Good Morning America, Headline News, and the internationally syndicated Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
