Hi. My name is Debra and I love sharing my passion for hands on mosaic making so others can enjoy playing with colour, shapes and pattern to get dynamic results. As a professional art teacher and artist, I have created mosaic designs for tube stations and local areas in community projects and school mosaics but also love to involve others in the communal side of making together!
I have also made commissioned work that includes portraits and large scale garden wall features, as well as pots and sculpture. With a Mosaic in Diploma Studies learning the ancient art of mosaic from Romans to Byzantine methods, and a Fine Art Painting background, I am also passionate about the history of this enduring and fascinating art form.
Well equipped park side studio with free parking, and local cafe in the park.
