Introduction

 I am a ceramicist and mosaicist and my work often contains some ceramic pieces made especially to blend in with the mosaic.  One of the original members of the Treatment Rooms, I also work on some projects with Carrie Reichardt, such as the Calmecac mosaic in Mexico, the Tiki Love Truck and the new project, The Zulu Liberation Taxi.

Most often I work with elderly people in communities and care homes to create large scale pieces which are then made into tables or wall hangings for their environment.  I provide the designs and teach the participants good mosaic skills to create the work, helping where necessary.  Most of the mosaic work is primarily done by the participants.  This gives them a new skill, a focus and a distraction and they find it extremely therapeutic, looking forward to every workshop.

I also run art holidays in painting and mosaics, taking people to Greece and Italy so far.  More information about this can be found on my website:  Linda@ArtHolidaysAbroad.com

Statement

I am primarily a ceramicist and mosaicist, although I also have a keen interest in photography and painting.  My own work usually combines ceramics with mosaics, creating some specific ceramic pieces that integrate well with the mosaics.   I am also one of the original members of The Treatement Rooms and have worked on some projects with Carrie Reichardt, such as the Calmecac mosaic in Mexico, the Tiki Love Truck and the new Zulu Liberation Taxi.

Most of my work is with older people in communities and care homes.  Together we make larger scale mosaic work that can be used as a table top or a wall hanging for their communal spaces.  The thereapeutic effects of mosaic create a focus for the participants as well as a distraction from everyday concerns.  During the workshops the participants learn how to mosaic well, developing their skills as we progress, with help as needed.

I also take people on painting and mosaic holidays.  So far these have been in Greece and Italy, with further venues planned.  More details of this can be found on my website: www.ArtHolidaysAbroad.com
