is a small design studio that celebrates the ancient art of mosaics while giving a style called Picassiette a fresh and contemporary spin. Picassiette is a popular style of mosaicing that uses recycled or shards of broken china, glass, ceramic tiles, pottery, porcelain and whatever else the artist's imagination envisions to create rich tangible works of art that are functional as well as decorative. With time honoured craftsmenship Mosaicworks specializes in designing breathtakingly beautiful handmade pieces that are truly one of a kind.
Artist, Designer, Educator
Karen Johnston, ECE
After attending art school (OCA, 1984-1988) I began working in advertising as a layout artist and an art director. From there my passion for design grew. I worked for many years as a freelance graphic designer before turning my creative energy to mosaics. In 2005 I established Mosaicworks. Today I'm happily sharing my passion for mosaics with a hands-on workshop called The Magic of Mosaics.
Six Owls and A Party is a children's book with mosaicked Illustrations. If you'd like to purchase a copy go to my shop.
