the artist

Karen Wones

My first career was in nursing, midwifery and health education within the Health Service and for a National Charity

15 years ago, I started mosaic-art  as a hobby.  After a short while I thought that I would like to teach my new-found passion for cutting and sticking!   I attended mosaic courses and soon built up experience and a portfolio of commission work and projects in schools.

My work is now very varied, working in my own studio (Berkshire), in schools and within different projects in the community.  I feel that my previous career has led me and my mosaic-making to new areas and exciting ventures within ‘arts and health’.

I still make my own mosaic work; they are mostly individually commissioned or commercial pieces.
