I am a life-long art hobbyist, but new to mosaic. Before mosaic, I worked in fiber art, quilting, pottery, porcelain, watercolor, etc. Mosaic feels like the medium to bring together all the different forms of art from my whole life. My husband and I both work for Habitat for Humanity International and he is currently assigned to a hurricane recovery project in Puerto Rico. On my first discovery of the Atelier del Mosaico in Puerto Rico, I exclaimed to Luis Alberto Rivera that during this work assignment in Puerto Rico, I want to learn everything possible from him about mosaic art. I’ve had a good start with 2 years of learning and practicing in this medium, with new projects every few weeks. Puerto Rico has beauty and heartache at every turn, plenty of inspiration for years to come!
