FEATURED ARTIST OF THE MONTH

RECENT POSTS

by Sally Kinsey - October 2017

 It seems like yesterday I was attending one of Bonnie Fitzgerald’s classes at Touchstone Center for Crafts in Virginia. It is to this day one of my favorite mosaic memories, as well as a life-changing encounter! Bonnie’s love of mosaic art, her joy of teaching it, and the enthusiasm she brings to her classes could not have been explained, I had to experience it. I am sure many of you who have taken a class of Bonnie’s know exactly what I am talking about.........read more

You'd think that I would've met Janis through mosaics, but that's not how we met.  We both belonged to the same art group and we were both accepted into their juried art exhibit.  She just happened to be dropping off her artwork moments before me.  She came walking around the corner as I was taking my artwork out of the box.  We've been friends ever since..................read more

Last night I spoke on the phone for the first time with Anne Marie Price. We have, like so many others, communicated a bit through Facebook in the past. I have been both fascinated and an admirer of her work for years, and speaking with her was every bit as enjoyable as viewing her mosaics.................read more

  It always surprises me how similar yet different people are. We all have at least a dozen things we can find in common with someone we just meet, and look forward to the knowledge treasure hunt that still remains to unfold. Speaking with Aly Winningham for the first time truly brought this into focus for me................read more

 

 

 

Nesting by Elizabeth St. Hilaire

by Sally Kinsey - June 2017

As with many of the mosaic people I know, I had the pleasure of meeting Karen for the first time in person at the SAMA convention in Chicago.  It was my first SAMA event, and I had just started Tiny Tile Mosaics.  Karen visited me in the Vendor Marketplace and it was the highlight of my trip. Her energy and enthusiasm were uncontainable and contagious!...............read more

 

 

 

Nesting by Elizabeth St. Hilaire

by Sally Kinsey - May 2017

This month Luna Mosaic Arts brings you a wonderfully unique Featured Artist, Elizabeth St. Hilaire. Elizabeth is a collage artist, and carries the tagline “painting with paper” with her work. Although Elizabeth does use paints in some of her work, that is not the painting! “Painting with paper” is referring to the amazing images she creates with her hand altered papers, which look very much like a painting as opposed to a mixed media type of work, as you can see in the images we have included...............read more

What, This Old Thing? by Donna Van Hooser

by Sally Kinsey - August 2016

  If you are not already familiar with the works of Donna Van Hooser, get ready for art and an artist that will not disappoint. Donna’s work is diverse, whimsical, incredibly detailed, and a pleasure to behold. I first met Donna at the Artists Reception for the Mosaic Arts International show during the SAMA conference in Lexington, Kentucky. Donna had the piece she mentions as “the robin dressed as Queen Elizabeth” which is titled “What, This Old Thing?”  I was in awe of the mastery in Donna’s cutting......read more

 

 

 

 

Dragonfly Landing by Wesley Wong

by Sally Kinsey - July 2016

Wesley Wong is someone I have been Facebook friends with for years. We all have those folks we “know” in the mosaic world, but do not know. Wesley has been one of those folks until now. This is the great thing about being asked to write these features for Luna Mosaic Arts…getting to know more about what makes other mosaic artists tick......read more

 

Morning Becomes Electric by Pamela Goode

by Sally Kinsey - June 2016

I would tell you this interview is going to be good, but it is not… Instead it is going to be all Goode!!! This month I have the privilege of introducing you to mosaic artist Pam Goode. First I must tell you, I met Pam years ago when I lived in Summerville, South Carolina. Pam is the founder of Ciel Gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina, where I took my first ever mosaic class......... read more

Analog Frog by Rebecca Collins

by Sally Kinsey - May 2016

You are all in store for a special treat! Rebecca Collins is an artist that I first became aware of through Flickr.com in 2009. Her quirky subject matter, vivid color palettes, and artistic vibe made me smile compulsively. When I hear “Rebecca Collins mosaics”, two subjects come to mind… robots and skeletons. Although this is not all Rebecca does, in my opinion, she does them like no one else........ read more

Box Canyon Boogie by Flair Robinson

by Sally Kinsey - April 2016

When the opportunity arose to interview different artists for Luna Mosaics, Flair Robinson was the first name to come to mind. Flair’s work has always been immediately recognizable to me. It is colorful, vibrant and thought provoking. There is a story to be told in every piece, and whether I find the story she is telling, or one of my own, I always come away feeling I have learned something from her art........ read more
