    of colour and dream like content has enchanted me Trying to create a mosaic in homage to Chagall was more of a challenge than I had expected I wanted to capture the innocence and personal content of his work This inspired me to create the first auto biographical mosaic that I have made The content and techniques I have used have forced me to explore new perimeters as an artist

    an ugly ducking So I have replaced a beautiful creature with one which has more down to earth overtones but still allowed it freedom to move The Cockerel The emblem of France The country that Chagall so loved and wanted to be loved and feted by by its Paris establishment and where he eventually returned to create many of his best works Chagall and Picasso so different and yet so

    I signed up to attend the exhibition I immediately thought of hat Then I decided to stage several elements of the paintings of Marc Chagall and behold it was gone The performance of the structure of women has not been easy because I had to make it rigid enough and she had to adhere to the substrate Almost all characters are in relief I do mosaic since 2002 and I

    space all feels like freedom Studying Chagall s mosaic in Chicago The Four Seasons and in Nice The Zodiac I was drawn to the outlined figures The background comes and goes into these figures as if they are transparent Having that in mind I then created Big Skies based on my own art In the late 90 s I painted Flying an acrylic painting in which the boat is gliding

    challenge to my mosaicing skills I ve always loved working with colours and different mediums and the challenge of using these mediums where you might not expect them is always fun This mosaic is taken from a snapshot area of Marc Chagall s picture in pastels Bonjour Paris 1939 1942 The challenge was to look at the flexible nature of colours blended in pastels used by Marc Chagall and try

    to do a small mosaic of aspects of MY street and life to see how much I could condense into a small piece slightly bigger than a postcard In this small piece I included a couple representing my husband Chris and I and 4 peas in a pod our 4 boys I decided to do a bigger piece of a couple I knew I wanted to do it in blue not just because I love the use Chagall makes of blue but because it s a very healing colour and I somehow wanted to portray the healing nurturing protective tender enveloping quality of love that I saw in many of Chagall s couples especially the marriages Practically one of my sons moved into a new flat and found many but only 2 different small blue tiles in his shed I thought it would be a challenge to just use 2 tiles look what you can get from X and Y chromosomes with a few beads and bits of blue mirror thrown in Another friend gave my some metal faces that had been on a pair of sandals These were my starting point I didn t do any drawings for this

    vitreous and silver backed glass tiles In the finished piece the bold lines overlapping designs and topsy turvy images may look nonsensical and maybe a little crazy but each element tells a story To help throw some light on it allow me to explain Full details of each can be found in my associated source book The Pig with Oak Leaves Acorn the angel with butterfly wings and the Bell Tower represents the legend of how my local town of Evesham came to get it s name and a Monastery The Pigs tail scrolling around the piece surrounded by flowers symbolises the blossom trail something Evesham is famous for The fish with the key hidden inside signifies another local legend of St Egwin who was released from his chains of sin by the finding of the key in the fish s belly The horseshoe shaped River Avon shows how the river meanders around the town with it s two access bridges and abundance of fish The fruit trees and asparagus represents the Vale of Evesham being known as the garden of England due to its fertile soils and renowned Asparagus The two lovers The females flowing locks has diamonds cascading
