People often ask if they can buy my work and the answer is a resounding YES PLEASE! I do have various outlets and you can always buy direct from me, and of course I do take commissions.
When I first started to make mosaics all those years ago, I started off with coasters and trivets. They were ideal items to have in a shop – the sort of small, low price item people would buy as a gift or for themselves. As my work progressed, I moved onto garden pots and small wall hangings, again ideal for a shop so it was great to be in All Original, a local shop specialising in designer/maker items.
I them started making mirrors and door numbers and once they went into the shop I received lots of requests for commissions. Again, they made perfect gifts and were very personalised for the recipient. After 2 years I decided it was time to leave All Original as I ended up having to make to sell rather than make to develop and progress my skills as a mosaic artist.
9 years on from that first, tentative mosaic and I am still learning and hopefully progressing all the time. I have moved on to making much larger items for both indoor and outdoors. Wall hangings, pictures, glass-on-glass and now I am doing a lot of work on slate. I now work mostly to commission as each piece is very specific to the buyers requirements. I am in 2 Galleries in Northumberland and I would like to find a local Gallery as another outlet to display and sell my work. If you know of anywhere or anyone that you think may appreciate my style of work, please get in touch via my Contact Page.
We now have the 9th stage of the Capital Ring under our walking boots. Starting at our most local point, we started to climb towards north west London. I suppose that the clue was in the description: Horsenden HILL, Sudbury HILL and finally Harrow-on-the………HILL. Yes, it was one of the highest legs of the walk, also the furthest point, 10 miles from Charing Cross. A great section though and from now on we are into unknown territory. We are half way now and hope to finish within a year.
