Fascinated by texture and colour and its infinite possibilities. Always striving to learn, improve and discover new challenges

Always being fascinated by mosaics. It was not until 8 years ago that I took my first lesson and was immediately hooked. Life since then has been totally engrossed in mosaic … constantly learning, researching, reading, practicing, teaching and taking every opportunity that has arisen.

I have recently finished a two year long community project to produce a 120 sq ft mosaic in the heart of Cheshire.
Also lucky enough to be selected as part of the installation team on a global project  Ocean D’Amore (January 2016)- adding a mosaic to the exterior of the building of the Ministry of Culture in Tongoy, Chile. And a collaborative project making signage for the Chicago Mosaic School, Illinois. USA.

The more I learn the more I realise that mosaic possibilities are infinite both in materials that can be used as well as techniques that can be employed to produce a myriad of effects . I love the fact that it is an art form that can be accessible to all and range from the most basic and simplistic to completely grandiose, or even bizarre.

Its all so very exciting !!!!!!
