A Three Part Glimpse of Mosaic Artist Katherine England

Katherine England, my friend and mentor, who I started taking classes from in 2008, has recently begun teaching from her home.  She has taken her garage and turned it into her art studio and classroom teaching space.
Katherine's Backyard and Driveway which is her extended Workshop Space 
She is currently working on a commissioned mosaic work for the city of Anaheim for a new park they are dedicating to Paul Revire's Ride. 
The piece will be enormous, on a monumental scale, and Katherine has drawn out her design on paper and now she is gluing her mosaic pieces onto a netting over top the paper. She told me she has incorporated a couple of the drawings her children did when they were little.  The entire piece takes up several long tabletops.
She still has a ways to go, so I will let you know when it is installed in case you want to take a peek.
And here's a little cutie below that she recently finished.  She works both 2 and 3 dimensionally, and if you are interested in taking classes from her, or buying a piece, just click on her name above.  She is a dynamic teacher and also offers classes in other media as well, such as bookbinding and journaling, fused glass, shrines, and soldering.  I believe in the summer she also offers children's art camps.  She is located in downtown Fullerton.  Tomorrow I will give you a couple more peeks into her art and life.
