My designs are spontaneous reflecting inspiration from ‘where I am at the moment’; sea related ideas happened following a coastal trip. I like creating texture with bits of old jewellery.

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.

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
