About the Artist:
This is going to be short.

I have no art training or education at all.

I don't think I've taken an art class since 6th grade - that was sometime in the 60's.

I don't have a degree in anything.

I wasn't "always interested in art ever since I was young".

I wasn't interested at all until I was in my late 30's.

Then I just kind of exploded.

Then I had chronic depression for about 10 years and imploded.

Hopefully, I'm re-exploding now.

Completely self-taught artist.

No Guru, No Method, No Teacher.
(thanks, Van Morrison!)

What is it?

These are all eggshell mosaics, mosaic art pieces made with tiny pieces of egg shell. I have been working with egg shell mosaics for about 16 years, although I stopped for about 10 years. I’ve sold pieces at art fairs, but never tried selling mosaics on the web.
Mostly, I work on wood, but I have worked on papermache, glass and metal. I clean the membrane thoroughly from the egg shell and then I color them. They are NOT painted. Painting would create a flat all-one color and if you look closely at the closeup photos, you can see that each egg shell has color variegation. This creates the true look of mosaics. I use a translucent mixture that I mix up myself.
Then I apply the eggshells with a special glue to the painted wood. I push them down flat and make sure that they do not overlap with another piece. When done, I seal the whole piece with gloss varnish. They feel like real mosaics too, smooth but with some texture and cool to the touch. These are MADE to be touched and can be cleaned with simply a slightly damp cloth.

The inside is painted a deep purple and the bottom has purple and white eggshells. The whole thing has multiple coats of gloss varnish, to seal and give some shine.
