I had my first introduction to mosaics 7 years ago – 29th July 2007 to be precise.
Since then I have met some great mosaic makers: Julia (who got me started all those years ago on an art form I didn’t think I liked), Aimee, Kitty and all the mosaic artists I follow on Facebook. All of whom have inspired and encouraged me along the way.
I’ve also found great mosaic suppliers: Joe and Kate of Mosaic Heaven, James of Mosaic Workshop.
A big ‘thank you’ to all the people who have given me a platform to show my work: Osterley Garden Gallery, Runnymede Gallery, Jamie at Wetlands, Carol at Whitley Bay, Catherine at All Original, Aine at Kingston Arts, Vivien at Log Cabin, Peter, Louise and Carla at Arthouse Richmond Open Studios. I really appreciate you helping me get my work out to a wider audience.
I am really keen to get into Galleries so hopefully other places will take a liking to my work and let me display and exhibit. If you have any connections to Galleries, please encourage them to read this Blog and look at my photo gallery.
My latest Mosaic Friends are Trish, Barbara and Kathy from St. Albans. Trish found me via a friend of hers who saw my work in Northumberland. A tenuous connection if ever there was one! We have all become good friends and have met up a few times. We have now become known as the ‘Trolley Dollies’ because when we go shopping for mosaics supplies, we take out trollies – as little old ladies should!
Coming next: Inspiration from RHS Hampton Court Flower Show
It’s great fun being a trolley dolly, we all encourage and inspire each other and have lots of fun
From a fellow “trolley dolly” mosaic making is addictive – I love it!!!! and now know lots more people who do too!
