My name is Rebecca and I started creating Mosaic art in 2019 initially as a hobby to give myself some down time from a busy schedule . I have always been creative and mosaicking is a craft I find to be so therapeutic and rewarding.
I am really enjoying experimenting with different types of materials and colours which allows me to really explore my creative side. I've been working with iridescent glass as I love how the same piece can look different at different angles.
I have made a number of different stepping stone designs and mosaicked a variety of everyday objects from tables to trinket boxes .What started with making gifts for friends and family, unexpectedly it has gone from hobby to business!
Although still very early in my Mosaicking journey I have been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to create two (and a half) big projects
Arcadia and the Breakasurus - GoGo Discover Norwich
firstly I had been chosen to be one of the Artists for Norwich's GoGo Discover trail in partnership with Break Charity and Wild in Art and through January and February of 2022 I had the amazing opportunity to decorate two T-Rex sculptures for the Trail. Across the Summer of 2022 the public was able to see the almost 2m tall Arcadia T-rex sculpture in the center of The Royal Arcade in Norwich. Arcadia had a range of symbols that represented balance and harmony in nature. At the same time I decorated a smaller T-rex with the Break colours, a Breakasuras, which travelled the county with Break where they sold raffle tickets to win the Breakasurus.
Arcadia Was Auctioned in September 2022 and raised £10,000 for Break while the Breakasurus made £6,000 from raffle ticket sales.
Mural for Penthorpe's Glade Sculpture Garden
At the end of 2022 I spent my time created my second big project a 15ft x 2.5ft mural which I was commissioned by Pensthorpe to create for their "Glade Sculpture Garden"
The Mural is divided into two parts- "day" and "night" - each depicting a range of native animals. The day section of the mural captures the vibrant colours and lively activity of the animals during daylight hours, while the "night" section showcases the serene and mysterious atmosphere of the natural world after dark.
Visitors to the reserve can enjoy this piece in the Glade Sculpture Garden where it is surrounded by an array of other fabulous sculptures.
