Eco-Friendly Fine Art by Sandhi Schimmel Gold

Schimmel Art

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and that’s the method you’ll find at Schimmel Art. Sandhi Schimmel Gold’s work is now collected world-wide by private and corporate collectors, in museums and notable galleries, ‒ as well as hospitality and healthcare facilities. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, her art is totally green; meticulously and expertly hand-crafted.

Only a small number of pieces can be produced in a year. Her medium is upcycled paper that might otherwise go to waste, each made from thousands of unrelated images and text. Assembled like a mosaic, an entirely new portrait, landscape or fantasy image is created from Sandhi’s imagination. She has a natural affinity for color.

Sandhi attended fine art school and studied mosaic work abroad. Her interest in design, fashion, art and history led her to invent a completely unique art form. Her art grew intricate in construction, innovative in style, inventive in technique, inspiring to own. Think gorgeous, groovy and green!

Sandhi’s work was featured in several national publications including Interior Design and Martha Stewart magazines. Plus television, ‒ including an appearance on Access Hollywood.

From the Schimmel Art website, choose from available portraits, landscapes, graphics, floral, or abstract. You may also contact her with your custom needs, color consultation, and more. Only seven custom orders per year are possible.

Best of all, know that Sandhi’s artwork is free of toxic chemicals or adhesives. See the events page for exhibits from Arizona to LA, workshop opportunities, and to schedule a studio tour.

Trashed Objects Make Cool Art Sculptures

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
