Mosaic Portaits

Although I create lots of eyes mosaics, I also do full face portraits. my last two were portraits of 2 young talented musician sisters. 

Luana on the left plays the Piano, Charlotte on the right plays the Cello 

In Luana's portrait, I was inspired by the "Primavera" painting of Sandro Boticelli. 

I realized Charlotte's in a more Classical Roman style by using a "Guilloche" border, as the one used in this Dionysos Mosaic from Lybia

These pieces had to be delivered in France. I built both of them on a fiberglass mesh and took them with me in a wooden crate. I then completed them in my small studio above the gorgeous Baie de Somme.

St Valery sur Somme

A few times every year I create custom mosaics for my collectors. They often, but not always, are portraits. 

If you were interested in a commission, here is how things typically happen :

  • You send me a picture of the space or area where you would like the mosaic.
  • You share your idea of what you want.
  • I create and share with you a draft drawing or computer rendering of the mosaic, complete in context so you can see it in your space, and you can offer feedback.
  • Once we agree on the project, you pay a 60% deposit and I go to work.
  • I deliver and install the mosaic in your space and show you how to care for it.

I am a modern mosaic artist with a deep admiration for ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine Arts. You can see some of my own mosaics on my site mosaicblues.
