    Changes Are Happening Weekly Here

    I'm still trying to figure out how I want things to look here on my website. I think I've got it decided. I think ...

    Similar to the mosaics I make, as seen in the photo, I don't plan a whole lot ahead of time but mostly go with the flow intuitively.

    The Online Store is where you'll find mosaics for sale. Simple!

    I did have them set up differently; similar to where I used to have an online shop. However, this is new and should have a new look.

    There is only one photo each of the items for sale, with the exception of the Gazing Ball which has 3. If you want to see more photos of anything here, please send me a request and I'll gladly provide you with more information.

    The best part is, you can see each item distinctly, not all clumped together and harder to find what you're looking for. This is a visual site. I like that. I'm hoping this will be easier for those customers who know what they've seen before and want to find it again.

    Meanwhile, there's always something brewing in the Purple Palace Art Studio, so come back often.

    I'm still weaning myself from the old shop to my dedicated website. Please be patient with me. I guesstimate I'll be completely set up in the beginning summer months.

    So take a look around and see what's in the Online Store.

    Thank you for hanging in there while I get things situated. You are awesome customers and supporters. I appreciate you very much.

    Enjoy the journey,

  • Welcome to my World - About Me

    Welcome to my World - About Me

    About Me (the goofy one grinning in the photo):

    My alter ego, EarthMotherMosaics makes handmade mosaics, home decor and art. My muse and I have been making mosaics for over 16 years and am self-taught. Bohemian and hippie inspired art is what I love to create. Celestial Designs are a specialty.

    Starting out slowly in 2005 by giving mosaic gifts I had made, I eventually found what materials I liked, how I liked to use them and what tools were my favorite. My design preferences involve suns, crescent moons, sparkly stars and swirls or wavy lines of intense color used in an abstract way. Geometric shapes of stained glass and mirror are used to create what I call scrap art. When using dish tiles or shards my style can be associated with folk art.

    Art has always been a part of my life. Growing up in a river town in New Jersey in the late 60's early 70's only a small bridge away from New Hope, PA, I had the pleasure of walking over the bridge of the Delaware River daily into a whole universe of creativity. The smells of the water and fish from the river, strawberry incense and Hendrix guitar licks wafting through the head shop just off of the bridge into town is my most distinct memory. As a teenager, I found the psychedelic posters and trippy music within the store a favorite place to go. At the time I didn't realize that everything has an energy to it but even as a young teenager I felt an electric spark that would stay with me forever during those early years. I felt at home walking along the street gazing at all the shops filled with abstract paintings, pottery, being so close to theatre, coffee houses, restaurants with live jazz bands and boutiques of all kinds. These were my people! An energy never lost by the muse who guides me now was made throughout those early years.

    My mosaics are often made using small scrap pieces of stained glass and recycled mirror. Pieces of broken dishes and mugs are used giving them new life. Discarded wine and beer bottles become bottle art that shine and glow when placed in a window or near a lamp. Microwave plates become sun catchers filled with color. Broken pieces of jewelry, buttons, seashells, rocks and stones get placed in my work and are often focal points.

    Take a look through the Online Store and see what you can find that speaks to you.

    Enjoy the journey.
