Michaela’s Madcap Mosaics is the creation of original mosaic garden art and sculpture. Michaela is a self taught artist who utilises materials that she has a passion for sourcing such as; recycled and found objects, divine glass, tesserae, pebbles, stone, millefori, gem stones, ceramics, crockery, metal, brass, mirror and shells. Hand painted glass beads from a New Zealand artist are also added to her art.
Creativity has always been a part of Michaela’s life, through interests in drawing, photography and music. Her qualifications in Horticulture and moving to a property in Murrumbateman five years ago, led her to transforming a bare Hillside into a sculptured rock garden that is full of mosaic creations. This includes an orchard, vegetable and herb garden, tea garden and various garden ‘rooms’. It is through her passion for gardening that her love of Mosaic developed organically, as a way to compliment the surrounding flora and fauna.
Her distinctive mosaics come from her talent to see an object’s creative potential and transform it into a beautiful piece of garden art. She loves to involve her children in her art and has created some beautiful murals with their enthusiastic helping hands and drawings. Her most precious commodity is time.
