Mosaic Artist & Children’s Book Author
Explore Mosaics Through The Eyes of Janeen Brian
Are you fascinated by an art form, whereby pieces of media, set together, reveal a whole new idea or image? Mosaic making is a textural and visual art form and I love it!
Why I do what I do.
I collect – but only to create.
And I create because I must.
And I create with old, discarded objects: crockery, tiles and found bits and pieces.
And with these recycled, disparate items, I create because I love to see their new life; and to see a form of perfection rise from the imperfect.
About the Artist
Over the years I’ve been a teacher, an actor with a touring children’s theatre company, and also performed hundreds of television and radio commercials.
I love to travel and have been to many places in the world. Apart from reading and writing, I also love creating mosaics from recycled crockery and tiles, singing, gardening, and watching films or theatre. To keep fit I do Yoga, Aqua-aerobics, swim and walk.
I still live at the beach, at Glenelg, with my husband, our border-collie dog, Raffy, and two chickens. Our grown-up daughters have families of their own.
