Profile for MosaicSignature
Hello, My Name is Gail. I am a self taught Mosaic Artist and I design mosaic home and garden decor. I grew up in Alaska were I was surrounded by natures beauty. I got my creative and artistic side from my mother who always encoraged me to explore my talants. I was was a floral designer for many years. I started out in my mothers shop as a teenager and just went from there. I am a mom of 3 wonderful children and now that my children are grown and starting out on their own, I decided to try something new and found a passion in Mosaics.
My husband is my biggest fan and supporter. My favorite style is broken dish and found object. I search the antique and thrift stores for items that folks have all but given up on and turn them into something beautiful. I give them a signature. To take broken and unusual items and work them into something different and amazing just makes my day. I can sit for hours and just get lost in my work.
My Mother, who is an outstanding and recognized Alaskan artist herself once told me that talent is a gift from God that he didnt intend for us to keep to ourselves. He ment for us to share it with the world. That is what I intend to do. To share what I love so much to do with all of you and I hope you enjoy the pieces as much as I enjoyed making them. Thank you again for stopping in.
