Annaliese Brown - Modern Mosaic Maker, Tolkien enthusiast and Artist 
108-869-22-SwinfordPhoto-AJ021255- (2).jpg

Having taken my foundation studies in fine art at West Surrey College of Art and Design, I decided that a break in studies was needed, and I began working in the real world. A brief 37 years later, I moved to Ireland with my husband, giving up all that normal stuff to take a BA in Contemporary Art Practice at the Atlantic Technological University, (formerly Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) ) and revisit my love of creating.

Keen to expand and develop, I am  never content with standing still and will always be seeking my next engaging project.

I am happy to take commissions for mosaic pieces, either indoor artworks, or items suitable for outside, like house numbers, welcome signs etc. Some examples are shown in the Mosaic section.

Contact me by email, or via facebook to discuss designs and pricing.
