Sharon Svenson Mosaics

I have been exploring and working in mosaics full time since year 2000. Before that, from 1972, my focus was in weaving rugs and tapestry, but I became disenchanted with rigid structure.

What tapestry and mosaics have in common is the process of building images one area or piece at a time whether from yarn or tessarae. The potency of color in these mediums is what seduces me. Now I have added light and reflection.

I am inspired by the natural world that surrounds our home in rural Alaska. I share this incredible place with my artist husband, John, and our standard poodle, grey parrot, and two cats.

I invite you to look at my gallery of works and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or interest in any of the pieces.
