I fell in love with the art of mosaic in the late 90’s during the “Shabby Chic” era of home decorating. Mosaiced items were over my budget to purchase so I decided to teach myself how to make them. Being an antique dealer and collector of vintage dishes, pottery, buttons, and jewelry, I found a natural connection to using broken china and other found items to embellish such things as picture frames, tabletops, mirrors, trays, and bird houses with mosaic. I would call my style “eclectic whimsy”!
For me, half of the fun is the hunt for items to use in my projects! I am constantly exploring this art form and experimenting with different materials. I love how boundless and therapeutic mosaicing is!
