I am honoured that in the Spring of 2018, I was selected by Francesco Chimeinti, Italian master of arts, for a prestigious show in Florence with some of the best Mosaic artists, painters and sculptors in the world!
The mosaic Francesco selected is titled ‘Moving Forwards’ and was created in Milton Keynes. With our mainly low level buildings in the City here, you can always see our beautiful sun, which was the starting point of my mosaic: a red stained glass sun. From this I worked intuitively around it in white, pink and grey stone, red Italian orsoni smalti, orsini gold…all framed by a local blacksmith Nic Packham. This piece represents the vibrant energy, colour, shapes, and flow, or our wonderful up and coming City.
