I have been a mosaicist for over 20 years, focusing on critically endangered wildlife to further their cause and provide a small platform in the art world. In 2019 and 2020 abelmosaics was shortlisted in the Explorers Against Extinction global Art initiative, furthermore selected as Runner Up for The Artist Award in 2020. My work is in print and I have exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society in London and throughout UK. Wildlife commissions are welcomed with 10% donated to conservation charities such as Tusk; mosaics have sold to renowned conservation explorers and mountaineers. I work on mesh/board in the “Direct” method using ceramic, marble, glass, slate and smalti, making eyes, beaks and claws using the glass fusion process to give personality. Technique is influenced by the Roman Opus mosaic art form with a modern twist. I give weekly mosaic workshops in Wiltshire. abelmosaics is a member of the British Association of Modern Mosaics (BAMM), Heritage Crafts Association (HCA), The Wildlife Art Society International (TWASI) and Wiltshire Wildlife Trust (WWT).
