Emma is a WILDLIFE MOSAICIST. She is largely self taught, introduced to mosaics by mosaic masters Martin Cheek and Oliver Budd who provided an understanding of technique, styles and application. She has City&Guilds qualifications in ceramics and MAKES GLASS FUSION TESSERAE to enhance character and personality. Each ruffled feather or tuft of fur is cut with precision to create realism. In 2020 Emma was selected from over 600 global entries as RUNNER-UP FOR THE ARTIST AWARD in "Sketch for Survival" Arts competition run by conservation charity Explorers Against Extinction. Commissions are welcomed and mosaics are available to purchase from her website, with 10% DONATED to wildlife organisations such as the African conservation charity Tusk. WORKSHOPS with abelmosaics take place weekly in the studio or externally. Students learn the SEVEN STAGES OF TECHNIQUE and Emma's tuition has been described as skilful, INSPIRATIONAL and SUPPORTIVE without being intrusive. With a wide selection of tiles and designs on offer, students have soon caught the mosaic bug and return for another workshop! Follow @abelmosaics on Instagram and Facebook
