My interest in mosaics was awakened by a love of colour. But I am also captivated by the meditative process of cutting and laying the tiles – I can become fairly obsessive about it! I would love to see a revival of the ancient art of mosaics – it’s the perfect adornment for our urban environment, bringing colour and cheer to all the grey around us. My mosaic work is contemporary in style and I use a wide range of materials (but I’m particularly fond of incorporating up-cycled china – it’s such an exciting medium!). I like recycling materials in general – for example, my mosaic work ‘Lino Tree’ was made from the discarded remains of industry: I found the lino poking up through the ground of a former tip.
