Come and see the inspirational art work of our artists at the Cancer Wellbeing Service. While there is a therapeutic element to art sessions that build confidence, provides distraction, relaxation and fun for those affected by cancer, there is also fantastic uplifting work produced and on display.

I work predominantly with old British china, silver and semi precious stones to make decorative mosaics and jewellery, finding texture, pattern and colour in the changing landscape around me.

My designs are spontaneous reflecting inspiration coming from 'where I am at the moment'; all things seaside happened after a trip to Southwold. I love the textural effect that comes from using coloured glass and unusual beads.

I am a part time mosaic artist based in Peterborough. I started making mosaics originally as a form of therapy after a period of ill health. The therapeutic value of mosaic making is immense. However it does involve a lot of staring at colours and shapes trying to decide which ones to use in a piece! I try to make my pieces as colourful as possible, as I like to have artwork in my home that makes me feel happy and peaceful.

The mosaic picture below (from a series of 3 'Meadow' pictures all sold now) capture the sense of colour, light and tranquility that I want to create in my pieces :

I love nature and animals; these influence my mosaic work hugely and inspire me to create colourful pieces centering around flowers, trees and the sea. I tend to work in quite an abstract way and my pieces are designed to give the sense of something through colour, shapes and textures. I particularly love using quite shiny or iridescent glass tiles as these reflect light beautifully. I often add little things, such as gem stones or little pebbles that I have found on trips to the north Norfolk coast. Such as the Seascape picture below:

I also love and find inspiration from Folk Art. The following series of 3 pictures captures the style of North American Folk Art:

I also create lots of smaller items, such as coasters:

Small hanging birds, owls, cupcakes and hearts:

These all make lovely unique little gifts.

Thank you so much for looking at my bio- there are many more pictures that I could include- but hopefully you can visit me (and Mary Kemp) during the Open Studios to see more..... I look forward to seeing you then and may even make some cupcakes.....

My inspiration comes mainly from the infinite form, patterns & colours of nature.  Nature's palette with a pinch of the abstract, Islamic geometry - bright, vibrant and usually lots of swirls!  Designs incorporating glass and ceramic tiles, gemstones and beads, with an Islamic/Arabic influence.
Beginners/intermediate mosaic workshops offered - please contact me for details.

I have designed and coordinated several community mosaics in and around Peterborough.  The biggest & most recent one being the Froglife mural, commissioned by the charity Froglife and installed at the Green Backyard on Oundle Rd.  This 4ft by 8ft glass mosaic mural was created with the help of over 100 volunteers (most of whom were complete beginners in mosaic art) and took 5 months to complete through workshops held twice a week at The Green Backyard.  It is situated on the back of a sheltered bench, beside the pond and depicts images of plants and animals found in and around the pond.    The mural represents a celebration of the community who came together, braving some of the coldest winter months, to create a masterpiece!

Last year I was commissioned by the Uppingham In Bloom Committee to deliver a community mosaic project in Uppingham, Leicestershire.  We designed and created a beautiful mosaic flower-covered stone plinth to commemorate and celebrate 35 years of the annual 'Uppingham in Bloom' event.  This piece was installed in one of the flower beds in the town centre & Uppingham went on to win the East Midlands In Bloom Gold Award 2018
