About the Artist and her Mosaics

 My initial interest in 3D mosaics started at West Dean College, where a workshop showcased the wide range of colourful mosaic pieces used to create exciting surfaces on 3D forms.  It was not until I became an ex-Art teacher though that I was able to develop this enthusiasm!  Nancy Goodens at Artworks provided the basic skills needed and since then ...... there's been no stopping me!

On terracotta plant pots, dishes, planters and window boxes I create exciting, colourful mosaic surfaces to cover them. Each one is unique as I don't repeat designs.  The mosaic pieces I use include ceramic and glass tiles, mirrors, buttons and beads, glass nuggets and broken crockery gleaned from charity shops and car boot sales.

My inspiration for each piece may be a dramatic colour combination, the garden I work in, interesting patterns and text found on old crockery or a request by someone looking for something in particular for a space in their own garden, patio or conservatory. I undertake many private commissions for both 2D and 3D mosaics.

Having initially filled my own garden with them and given them away as gifts, I now sell my pots to allow others to enjoy them and fund further projects.  Some regular customers have even started to collect them - brilliant!
