My Mosaic background:
I am a mosaic artist based in Peterborough. I started making mosaics originally as a form of therapy after a period of ill health, as I found the therapeutic value of mosaic making immense.

After a long period of being unwell, triggered by work-related stress (I was a nurse manager in the NHS), a friend stated that the work had 'broken me'. This simple statement summed up for me what had become so appealing about making shards of glass into a beautiful piece of art.

As a result, the following quote, which I came across recently, sums up what mosaic means for me personally:
'Shards of glass can cut and wound or magnify a vision. Mosaic celebrates brokenness and the beauty of being brought together.' (Terri Tempest Williams)

I have struggled throughout my life with depressive thoughts and anxiety and, for this reason, I try to make my mosaics full of vibrant colours and peaceful images to promote harmony and well-being.

My Mosaic Etsy shop:
I established my Etsy shop in 2017 and mainly sell my work through this. As a result of this, I now consider mosaicing to be my full-time employment.

My inspiration for mosaics :
I love nature and this influences my mosaic work hugely and inspires me to create colourful pieces centering around flowers, trees and animals.

Folk Art is a particular interest of mine and I love researching images and ideas and translating them into mosaic. I have made pieces inspired by North American folk art, Indian folk art and, most recently, Native American.

Glass is a medium that I find has a wide range of colours that can be combined together in many form.

I have continued to develop kiln carving as a interest, and from this added effects within the carved space.  A recently attended course has shown me other avenues to explore.

On the weekend of the 9-10th July I will be in residence at Denise Brown's studio (Grange Farm, Whittlesey, Benwick, Cambridgeshire PE15 OXU) demonstrating Raku with Christine Withall.
