Lisa Kokin

I love buttons and I'm pretty fond of portraiture too, so imagine my delight when I came across the work of Californian artist Lisa Kokin who uses buttons and other found objects to create portraits. Awesome. 

Passage
Buttons and mixed media, imitation sinew, waxed linen, chicken wire

She also creates work by sewing together found photographs which I am very much down with.
