ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

During 2012 I was fortunate enough to spend 2 terms as the ‘Artist in Residence’ working with the children at the Maharishi School.

 

In the 4th Term we took on the mammoth task of making a 3m x 2.5m mosaic mural for the school. These photos show the journey from initial design & planning through to final grouting. The mural is made of 17 individual pieces which made handling much easier for the children (and me!!...considering we didn’t always have favourable weather to work outside!).

 

The finished piece is proudly mounted at the school entrance.

 

I would like to make a special mention to 'The Tile people in Eltham' www.thetilepeople.com.au who donated most of the tiles used in this project!
