Working in an art form that could last millennia, doesn’t it make sense to do it with excellence?  If you want to learn to make EXCELLENT mosaics; in execution, andamento, color, design, material, I’d love to help you.

I’m offering a class called Professional Mosaic Development (PMD) as a bi-weekly semester course OR  a weekend workshop.   In this course you’ll learn the key components and steps to make award winning FINE ART MOSAICS and discover or more fully embrace your unique style and ARTISTIC VOICE.

How do you want to be remembered?  Make 2013 a year to launch into your true calling as a fine artist.  Seize the Day!

I can remember saying many times, “I don’t do micro mosaics.”  I like to work in fine detail, but don’t enjoy cutting minute pieces.  Until I actually tried real Micro Mosaics, I had no idea how fun it actually was.  To me, it feels like doing a cross-stitch or needlepoint project, stress free, relaxing…  And it’s the perfect kit project, the perfect gift for that perfect someone who has everything.

Made with thin strands of Venetian glass called Filati, these are truly little gems.  Traditional methods and materials, meet good old American ingenuity and creativity.  I love the idea of using a centuries old medium to speak in contemporary terms…behold, the “Hashtag Micro” (pictured), my ode to the love of Twitter and joy of making an impact in Social Media.

Announcing two opportunities to make a piece like these, or a design completely your own.
