ahh, the "about" page.

I wish the work could speak for itself....but here we go, without trying to sound too cringe.

This is me, being goofy and holding one of my latest sculptures, a sharks tail, if you hadn't already guessed.

I've come a long way in such a short space of time, from a few years ago, making mosaic hanging hearts in my kitchen, to now having my own studio where I design, sculpt and mosaic my own substrates.

ArtSeaLea Mosaic Workshop

If only it could look like this all year round. I'm a summer girl at heart, so can't wait for days like this again.

After studying textiles, art and surface pattern, it wasn't until residing in Cyprus for a couple of years that I fell totally in love with mosaic.

At that time, I was coming to terms with my sons Autism diagnosis.

The complex needs surrounding this, and trying to process it all felt utterly devastating....and that's when I found comfort in creating.

Mosaic became my own personal therapy. 

Seaside inspired mosaic art

The sea,

once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.

Stained Glass Art of Durdledoor

I am hugely drawn-in and have an enormous sense of being at peace by the sea, beach, watching waves and feel so inspired by the colours, light, reflections. 

Watching programs such as David Attenborough's Blue Planet, and scrolling through reels on Instagram, has really drawn my attention to oceanic creatures and in particularly Whales. 

They are quite mysterious and I find quite mesmerising. 

I wanted to find a way to create something amazing in mosaic that I haven't seen before.......

and right now, I think I have found that way.....and turned my creations into something truly special.
