Schimmel Art Review & Giveaway

It’s finally time for the Schimmel Art giveaway!

If you loved the last review and works displayed, you’ll love this! Keep reading for more details!

Absolutely no technology, programs or dies are used to create her art. It is hand-painted, hand-cut, hand-applied, hand-embellished, and hand-finished. Art is more than just something she does, it is a way of life for Sandhi. She has an amazing resume with a lifetime of experience in several different mediums and types of art. Aside from the remarkable work itself, I greatly admire the fact that she’s taken such a passion and made it her life’s work. She began by painting murals and moved on to design consumer goods.

My vision is to create beautiful yet thought-provoking images of beauty; in vibrant color. – Sandhi Schimmel Gold

At first glance, you see beautiful faces in vibrant colors. You can view famous stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O., and John Lennon. She also does custom portraits and even beautiful animals and scenes. Sandhi’s art is created from junk mail, greeting cards and advertising ephemera on canvas. It’s hard to believe that these vibrant pictures were once advertisements and p.o. box cast offs.

What makes Schimmel Art  Green? Sandhi says, “I create without waste. I upcycle junk mail, calendars, post cards, photos, old greeting cards, tags, etc… it’s all paper waste I collect. I use only water-based, acid-free, non-toxic materials to create my work. It is completely eco-friendly. I reuse and repurpose canvas, frames, etc. whenever possible.”

You don’t have to be an art enthusiast to appreciate the detailing that goes into each piece of this collection. Her works are featured in several museums throughout the United States as well as in private collections and homes.

It’s time to WIN your own set of Schimmel notecards! These would make a wonderful Christmas gift or treat for the writer in you!
