Leah J. Mitchell
As a native New Mexican, I have always been inspired by the variety of beauty New Mexico provides: bright sunsets, desert flowers, chile ristras against stucco walls, hot air balloons hovering over the Rio Grande, and so much more. When seeking an imaginative outlet from my normal routine as an accountant, I was drawn to the variety provided by mosaic. It can be an architectural accent, add color and texture to a sculpture, present like a painting, or be the beauty of a useful household item.
As a recent retiree, I am able to devote more time to art. Combining inspirations of nature and color with the options of mosaic, I am provided endless opportunities for creativity. Most of my work is made from ceramics and glass, but I enjoy adding found items such as broken dishes, shells, and rocks.
