Photo to mosaic art!

I have been meaning to make this mosaic for some time - and although I am very happy making Valentine mosaics ( keep the orders coming in!), I needed to have a little change for a day or two, while I waited for some deliveries!

This is a photo of one of my favourite views on my dog walking trails, with Pip.  It is in The Dingle near where I live in Bristol.  I must have taken numerous photos of it at different times of the year, and it never fails to inspire me.

So I have made this mosaic of it, which was a bit of a risk as it IS one of my favourite places - but I am happy with the end result - the peace, the reflections, the colours....

It got me thinking that maybe you have a favourite place/holiday view/ building/scene  ...  whatever - that you might want set in stone, as it were!  It would be an impression of it, of course, but sometimes that's the thing that remains with you, and means the most - and that would be my challenge.  I can work from a photo.

A bespoke mosaic of this size 40cm x 30cm would be approx £250 plus p&p.  I say this because I have had a number of enquiries recently of clients wanting one of my mosaics but with a totally unrealistic idea of what they might cost - which can lead to disappointment all round, really ... just saying!

Each tile is lovingly hand cut - each mosaic an original work of art!

Do get in touch if this is something you might be interested in.



  1. Lovely blog! Looking forward to keeping up wit it although my blog posting and reading have become very sporadic recently. Just not enough hours in the day!

  2. Thanks, Aileen - I know what you mean! Fx
