My art has evolved from a desire to try something new and interesting after retiring from a career in accounting. A casual interest in mosaics has evolved into spending many hours creating items with broken ceramics and other found objects. Basically a self-taught artist, I have developed my skills from hands-on experience as well as extensive internet research on techniques and proper procedures related to this art form.
Recently, I discovered the Ciel Gallery in Charlotte, NC. This discovery has expanded my interest in mosaics to include stained glass. Working with glass tiles as well as glass on glass techniques has provided me with many more opportunities to expand my art.
CONGRATULATIONS, PAT! Pat recently won Third Place for her "Garden Poetry" mosaics at the Southern Arts Society 2017 art exhibit and competition "A FRESH LOOK."
Pat's work can be viewed and purchased at all Catawba River Artisans art festivals and shows and at the following galley:
