I would like to share a little history of how I fell in love with Pique-Assiette Mosaics. Pique Assiette is French for "Plate thief" which has it's roots in the Victorian Era. Pique-Assiette grew of the notion of not wasting anything, which is a concept especially important today to protect our planet. The idea is to use old china, tea cups, ceramic figures and assorted found objects to create beautiful and meaningful mosaics. This method was revived in the 20th century by Antoni Gaudi.
Creating these one of a kind pieces makes my creativity soar and my heart happy knowing that these pieces are unique for each recipient. I have created pieces for the Cancer Wellness Center to honor my sister's memory, for a mom in mourning for her child, to support a cancer warrior and to add a special touch to a beautiful rock garden for an amazing child. I also love creating custom made mosaics from meaningful items and special heirlooms. Recently a young woman asked me to bring back to life family dishes from her Holocaust survivor grandmother. I created three special pieces for her, her sister and her mother, spreading the fond memories across the entire family.
A few words about ME. I was born in France and came to the US in 1993. I went to get a bachelor's degree in Psychology, got married to my soulmate, received a Master's degree in Social Work and had three incredible boy s. A couple of years later I moved to Deerfield, Illinois and got a lovely dog named Twix. I have a few things that give me happiness: my family/friends, teaching art to kids and making mosaics.
I hope you will give me the opportunity to bring joy and color to your home.
