Yardley Wood Community Primary School June – 2016
I was invited, once again, to work with the lovely pupils at Yardley Wood Community Primary School, Birmingham. This time we created a 100 x 2 ft foot long mosaic on external marine ply for the playground wall. The theme was Fantastic Flowers!!!
I worked with the entire school from Nursery & Reception to Year 6, all the staff were involved from the secretaries to Teachers and Teaching Assistants. It had lots of crazy colours and patterns…and a whole lot of fun!!
Bling Ear-ring Mosaic Project, Black Country – May 2015
Eton Porny, Eton London – July 2015
I was invited to be Artist in Residence at Eton Porny School. The pupils, age range from Reception to Year 4, had created a series of drawings of their local area. I designed a composite of their work for an external mosaic mural. Each panel measures 120cm high and 80cm wide. The mosaic is now a welcoming feature on arrival at the school’s main entrance. View the work in progress gallery.
Park Hill Junior & Infant School – 2014
I have been commissioned to create a 6 ft high x 8 ft long mosaic that will face the front of the school. I will be using the school’s sound-bite “Bringing out the best in everyone” and also Year 3’s amazing drawings inspired by patterns from around the world.

New Haven Assessment Unit, Princess of Wales Hospital, Bromsgrove – August 2013
I was invited to create a large mosaic at Princess of Wales Hospital, Bromsgrove. I worked with a group of 10 middle school students to create the ‘Sun & Moon Mosaic’. I facilitated patients and staff to complete one part of the mosaic. The project coordinator was keen for me to add my Garden Goddess flourish to the project. I used crockery from the 1970s that would be reminiscent to the patients and as a strong and positive talking point.
