Inspiring women create community mosaic exhibition

I have just finished a wonderful 4 week series of mosaic workshops, teaching a group of total beginners, in the “jump straight in and mosaic” method! Each person designed their own mosaic and got straight to smashing and sticking! And in four 2 hour sessions, didn’t they do well? Here are some pics of the […] Read more...

Job done!

The lovely community mosaic project is done…6 very large (60 x 60) paving stoned and a giant ‘Welcome’ soon to be installed in the local community garden at St. Nicks Children’s Centre in Stevenage. Well done to the lovely ladies from the Centre for such hard work and fantastic results. We are off on our […] Read more...

More community mosaics in the making…

In reality, I get  done all that I need to (with my perfectionist streak at work!)  but often at the cost of balance to my own life. Exercise […] Read more...

Giant mosaic insects – together at last!

But for now, I will let pictures do the talking. This week, the insects have been scrubbed, scraped and re-scrubbed so that they shimmer (hard to avoid […] Read more...

Flying mosaics..!

My latest mosaic commission is finished and flying to their new owners. I have loved working with these colours, combining vitreous goldlink tiles, glitter mosaic tiles, coloured mirror, iridescent nuggets.  I get a kick out of combining mosaic materials in just the right way…and was sad to see them go.   I am typing this […] Read more...

Mosaic & that special something….an opportunity for you!

There is something special about making mosaic art. If you have already been captivated, you will know what I am talking about. If  you have not come under its spell, let me explain. Mosaic making has some (almost mystical) ability to take us beyond ourselves and into ourselves, both at the same time. In connecting […] Read more...
