Abstract art, created and inspired by the seas curves and reflections, incorporating found beach treasure, such as shells, seaglass and driftwood. Recycling wherever possible.
Art is my therapy. I enjoy experimenting and playing, whilst soul searching and pushing boundaries.
This inevitably means making a mess of both my workshop and myself.
It can be annoying and frustrating that some people do not recognise Mosaic as Art.
One of my personal goals, is to alter the opinions of those individuals.
I don't want to conform to societies rules about who and what we should be... so let's try and break the mould.
I believe that Life is a "work in progress", so when does one stop trying?? Never!! So,while I'm here, I'd like to make it as much fun as I possibly can.
In the words of Prince....
"Life, it ain't real funky
Unless it's got that pop"
Where the Magic Happens
I am extremely fortunate enough to have my very own creative workshop space in our garden. It was made and designed by my husband, who is gold when it comes to DIY. Almost everything has been salvaged (recycled), from the wood to the double glazing doors. Luckily he puts up with a lot of my crazy ideas... but equally has a few of his own.
How it works with you, me and commissions
If you love beaches, waves, everything coastal and all it's beauty and treasures, you've come to the right place.
I can incorporate your own personal sea treasures into a bespoke unique work of art.
Or perhaps you have some old crockery, that you can't part with for sentimental value, let me work with your ideas to upcycle your treasures into bespoke wall decor.
What Makes Me Tick?
I love music... and listen to all kinds of everything... depending on my mood.
Music always wins over TV.
Music is food for the soul.
In any other spare time I have, (which mostly involves avoiding doing the housework) I love to pick up a pencil and sketching/doodling, some of which you can find on this page.
I find inspiration from reflections, texture and movement, and I am hugely influenced by the flowing curves of the Art Nouveau movement and era.
Working in my creative space often involves huge amounts of concentration and patience, being able to sit in the same position, sometimes for hours at a time... and my release from this?
I've been going ever since I can remember. It's part of my life and always will be. I truly thrive on those moments of euphoric adrenaline. Everyone needs some balance allowing focus and happiness.
After completing A Levels in Art & Design, Textiles and Photography, it wasn't until much later that I discovered my love for Mosaics whilst living in Cyprus.
At the time, my 4 yr old son was in the process of being diagnosed with Autism, Dyspraxia and moderate learning disabilities.
Mosaic became a way that allowed me to focus on my creative skills, whilst opening my eyes to the complexity of the diagnosis and how to understand it.
