MOSAICS

I enjoy working on different projects and would welcome inquiries regarding ‘up- cycling’ that could give an existing wall, floor or piece of furniture a new life.

One of my strengths is finding creative solutions to what many people would regard as a huge or expensive problem. For example, when some tiles in our kitchen unexpectedly ‘lifted’, my solution was first to check that there was no serious underlying cause and once satisfied that it was simply inadequate gluing, I created mosaics using some of the original tile and adding mosaic tiles and pieces from old plates, mugs and cups. It has worked extremely well and I will never be concerned again if any other tiles get cracked or broken, they will simply be creatively repaired.

One of my greatest joys is finding old furniture and giving it new life. An old 1950/60’s wrought iron table and six chairs were given new life with a new mosaic cement board top.

An old sliding door, replaced with a new stack door left a gap that could not be matched as the tiles were too old. Mosaicking the gap provided a creative solution to the problem.

We got tired of having our house number stolen off the wall…so I mosaicked the number on instead….and it is still there.

An old ‘Everite’ pot given a new personality with mirror pieces reflecting light and twinkling.

I am available for commssioned work, please feel free to contact me.

An unexpected lifting of old tiles in the kitchen led to a creative
solution that did not require re-tiling the floor, simply breaking
a few old plates and using some mosaic pieces and old broken tiles
