Papermache Creations :: Upcycle Art

Saturday, September 14, 2013


Born in 1966, in Kimberly, Africa, Jenee grew up in the gold city of Johannesburg. Jenee obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Cape Town in 1989. She majored in printmaking and etching. Also in 1989 she established her own business based on recycling of waste materials using papermache. Because of her love for wildlife conservation Jenee’s idea started by creating little animals of all sizes and shapes. Papermache Creations is a quirky,bizarre yet beautiful range of top quality products handcrafted through the papermache process in which throw away items considered as trash or junk are blended and mixed with found natural objects, newspaper and glue to create a 100% recycled product which gives a new vision to recycling and being "green". A product is created which is totally unique, imaginative and out of this world! A handmade South African recycled product.







All kinds of recycled things and found objects such as seedpods and newspapers were used to create a fantasy family called “The Jambees”. These adorable creatures were marketed very successfully through exhibitions, markets and supply retail outfits. The paper-mache Jambees range of items includes Mobiles (Guineadooks, Spaceducks, Elebirds, Girafbirds, Zeebbirds and Spacepiggies just to name a few) Bushnoof pencils, Boofaloon plant companions, Wowners potted flowers and Whimsical creatures featuring different animal forms seldom dreamed of outside Dr Moreau’s Island or Norman Catherine’s Fook Island.These unusual creatures are not your ordinary run of the mill characters. The Jambees are light hearted, delightfully pure fun and make people smile and laugh. Born, bred and living in Africa the paper-mache Jambees display a distinct sense of fun and originality rarely found.
