Life as a mosaic artist

It's been a very busy couple of weeks!

My small mosaics are going down very well - - which is great.
For the first time, I feel under a bit of pressure to get things made by a certain time (Valentine's Day, Mother's Day) but it's all good.
My learning curve with dealing with you, the general public, has been steep, but I am getting there - the customer is always right!
I am, however, not a machine (nor would want to be) - my mosaics are handmade and each one original, and that is something I must never lose.
Each mosaic is a work of art in itself, and I wouldn't dream of sending it to someone if I didn't feel it was.  Art is so personal, that a little part of me goes out with each mosaic - hoping it will be loved, cherished and enjoyed, as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
So, I must toughen up a little, without losing sight of why and how I do what I do - it's all about balance!

Onwards and upwards!



  1. I agree with you about not wanting to be a machine. I am starting to work on my crafts and hopefully open up an online shop myself (I found you via facebook via Attic 24). You do beautiful work and I used work in moasaic medium too.... It is very gratifying.... I love love love the one you did of the creek and forest. That is stunning. I am a new follower of your blog! Thank you for sharing the poppy tutorial.... I am going to go and mill about your blog some more!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Stasa - great to know there are people out there who appreciate what I do! Keep in touch Fx
