The Inspiration

Hi i'm Lisa Skelly.

I am a passionate animal rights advocate and environmentalist. I opened Rekindle as a way to use my love of art to raise awareness and spread compassion.

Rekindle by Lisa began in June 2017. I had been a vegan for two years at the time and the issues I had researched and discovered had shocked and appalled me to the point where I felt desperate to do something and bring about positive change. The idea behind my shop was to combine my love of buying second hand, with my passion for animal rights and the environment and tie it all together with my creativity!

I began painting and embellishing pre loved denim jackets and have gradually added new pieces and explored new ideas! I now have organic, fair trade tote bags with my designs on, I have hand painted activist patches and denim shirts.

I regularly create pieces for charities, sanctuaries and vegan groups. Sometimes I donate pieces to charity auctions, sometimes I sell pieces in my shop and donate all of the profits from the sale. I'm so pleased to have raised money for some incredible organisations such as, Viva!, Animal Aid, Save The Elephants, World Animal Protection, Surfers Against Sewage, Brighton Vegan Activists, Surf and Turf Sanctuary and Hugletts Wood Sanctuary.

I hope to continue spreading compassion and encouraging people to view our planet and all of the animals we share our planet with in a better light. Animals are not here for us to exploit. They live with us on this incredible planet. Our home. We have not only exploited the animals that live here with us for our own gain, but we have exploited our own planet too- polluting our oceans with plastic and tearing down our forests among many other things that threaten the very place we all live.

Thank you so much for browsing through my art work, taking an interest in the issues I am raising and, maybe even, ordering something from me to help educate people wherever you are in the world. I'm so grateful .

Thank you for reading

Frequently asked questions
Do you accept custom orders?

Not currently. My custom books are closed for the next 6 to 12 months as I am having a baby!

Can Patches be washed?

Yes! My sew on patches are hand painted with vegan fabric paint that is machine washable at 40 degrees.

Why do you upcycle pre loved materials?

Upcycling is really important to me. I strongly believe that over consumerism, fast fashion and mindless buying are incredibly harmful to the planet. I want to encourage more people to consider re using items, upcycling items and repairing items before buying brand new, unsustainable products.

What materials do you paint on?

I often find wood, hardboard, mdf and plywood that is used, left over from people's DIY projects or unwanted and being thrown away! I like to rescue that kind of material from landfill and turn it in to art. I love painting on second hand fabric- particularly denim as it is thick and there is so much of it in charity shops and online auctions. I also occasionally paint on FSC certified, vegan friendly art papers and I have painted on vegan canvas in the past.

What paint do you use?

For my original wall art, I use a mix of paints. I use Little Greene wall paints and Earthborn clay paints which are both eco friendly brands. I also use a little bit of acrylic.

​For patches and jackets I use Pebeo fabric paints which are water based.

I only use paints that have no animal products in.

Do you donate to charity?

Yes. I use my artwork to raise money for vegan sanctuaries and charities. Look for the Purple Heart in the description for charity pieces. I also plant a tree with every sale from my live gently collection 😊

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship prints in clear compostable sleeves with recycled grey-board backing for extra protection. I post them in hard-backed paper envelopes.


Patches are packaged in A6 recycled envelopes and shipped in a hard-backed paper envelope.

​Original art varies depending on size, but it is usually wrapped in tissue paper or brown paper and set in cardboard envelopes or corrugated card.

​Jackets are wrapped in tissue paper or brown paper and shipped in paper bags or compostable corn starch mailing bags.

​Needle felted animals are wrapped in tissue paper and shipped in cardboard boxes.

​Stickers are wrapped in tissue paper and sent in hard-backed paper envelopes.

​I use paper tape for the most part, but for international order
