A new mosaic and some thoughts about the web…

Hi friends, Here is one of my latest mosaics – a small one of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, where I ran some mosaic workshops a couple of years ago. I feel rather attached to it, having had the privilege of going right into that dome to see the mosaics close up. This mosaic was […] Read more...

Paper mosaic heart (or whatever takes your fancy!)
