the artist

Karen Wones


My first career was in nursing, midwifery and health education within the Health Service and for a National Charity.  Ten 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 (Worcestershire), in schools and within different projects in the community (Glos and Worcs).  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.
