About the Artist

I create contemporary mosaics using slate, stone and glass. Each small piece is cut by hand and positioned to create texture and dimension in my work.

I have been making mosaics for several years, learning from mosaic artists around the world. I have experimented with various materials but ultimately am drawn to those which can add texture and dimension to my work. I love using natural materials such as slate and stone. I use the traditional hammer and hardie, along with hand nippers to break the materials into small pieces (tesserae), which I then use to build lines and create my work.
I have recently returned to Scotland after living in the USA for a few years and this is my first open studios event.

We look forward to welcoming you to the studio!

Additional Events

Throughout open studios we will be running some 'have a go' sessions. Come along and try your hand at mosaics, felting or both! You can make a mosaic pendant for a necklace, a felted soap or a piece of coloured felt. There will be a small charge to cover materials.

Space for these activities is limited so please book your place by calling Rachel on 07475880664 or Gwen on 07758230384

This is a working studio so there will be demonstrations of both mosaic making and felt making every day. Refreshments and home-baking will also be available.
