Alexandra Dillon is a Los Angeles-based artist who brings back life to thrown away things. She uses the most common objects as her canvases and does miniature on them.
“My characters come to me the way [they do to] novelists. They show up and tell me who they are. I never quite know who will show up,” Dillon says.
She spends days working on a single piece, never finishing before the personality and emotion of a character emerge. Scroll down to see her masterpieces.
