4 VERY GOOD REASONS TO OWN ONE OF MY MOSAICS
1. YOU ARE MAKING YOUR WORLD MORE BEAUTIFUL
Beauty is inspiring. I have all kinds of beautiful art in my house, all of it sparks some kind of emotion in me. Whether that's wonder, or joy, or comfort, or even a piece that challenges me, they all move me in some way. All of these artists have contributed to making my world more beautiful. My mosaics evoke all kinds of emotions, as well as being simple beautiful.
2. EACH MOSAIC IS A UNIQUE
Lots a different things inspire me to make a mosaic, and no two mosaics are the same. You can own a piece of art that no one else has, or will ever have. You get to take that mosaic and have your very own personal experience with it, seeing what you see, feeling the feelings it invokes in you. That's the beauty of art, the experience of being with a piece is completely different for every person. My mosaics inspire.
3. MOSAICS ARE A SINGULAR ART FORM
I love painting, drawing sculpture, crafts, design - I've done them all. My father was an Impressionist painter. But mosaic, now this is an artform rarely seen in our modern day art world. And I have taken this technique and made it completely my own. What I do with mosaics, I call painting with glass. When you own one of my pieces you are owning a completely unique piece of art, in every sense.
4. HAVE ART IN YOUR LIFE AND YOU MAY LIVE LONGER, RESEARCH SUGGESTS
Researchers from University College London (UCL) found that engaging with the arts can act as a buffer against stress and build creativity that allows people to adapt to changing circumstances. "It can have wide ranging benefits and support healthier lives lived longer." the study says. I am not surprised. Having art around you that makes you feel good, be happy, all that Seratonin...who wouldn't want to live longer to experience all that? My mosaics would give you that.
