In the process, it has become a very fine showcase for some of the best new mosaic of recent years.“ - Chris Blanchett, proprietor of Buckland Books (specialist in all books on tile and mosaic).
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
"Dear Brit, I finally received the book. It's gorgeous!! It's the first mosaic book that includes techniques and supplies also the main element of mosaic - inspiration. You have placed the perfect pieces of art in the perfect chapters. You have created a book which makes me want to re-read it often for inspiration. You have given concrete ideas to those of us who don't know how to go about delving into ourselves for the real inspiration. Thank you!" - Patty, USA
"Got mine the other day, taking it really slow and absorbing each page. Been real inspired so far after maybe 8 pages? Buying pieces for a new project tomorrow following that inspiration." - Jeff, USA

The one thing you need to know about me is that I love to have light-hearted fun. While I'm sincere and introspective, I enjoy letting my hair down. By reverting back to childlike whimsy we tap back into our right brains, which is where our creativity lives. And that's how we create a better world for all. Aside from creating art, the one thing I'm super-duper passionate about is teaching. My books help you tap back into your own inner artist to overcome fear and become your highest potential.
