For 22 years I have made mosaics from furniture to portraits. Now, critically endangered wildlife is the primary focus of abelmosaics, trying to further their cause and provide a small platform in the art world. In 2019 abelmosaics was shortlisted in a national art competition run by wildlife conservation charity Explorers Against Extinction and has exhibited at the Royal Geographical Society in London. 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 individual personality. Technique is influenced by the Roman Opus mosaic art form with a modern twist. As well as participation in regular exhibitions/competitions, abelmosaics is in print and clients include Mountaineers and renowned Conservation Explorers. I give weekly mosaic workshops in Wiltshire. Wildlife commissions are welcomed. 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).
