I have been creating functional mosaics (mirrors, jewelry, frames) and decorative mosaic wall hangings for over 12 years. Most recently I’ve been experimenting with mixed media mosaics by integrating paint, collage, stenciling and layered buttons and beads with glass. Texture is the key element of my work.  I am fascinated by textures and patterns and how the arrangement of seemingly unrelated materials of varying color, size, shape and feel can come together to form a cohesive whole.

I use a rich color palette and a variety of materials —polymer clay and glass tiles, stained glass, pottery, millefiori, beads, buttons and jewelry—to create functional and decorative mixed media mosaics that are colorful and highly tactile. 

My mosaics have been juried into exhibitions at Lasell University, The Somerville Museum, the Danforth Museum of Art, The Cape Cod Cultural Center, Sharon Arts Center, the Mill, and Emerson Hospital. I teach mosaic workshops out of my home studio in Waltham and at mosaic studios and art centers including the Fuller Craft Museum and Snow Farm. I served as the founding President of the New England Mosaic Society (NEMS). Contact Amy at amyloumarks@gmail.com. Website: www.amymarksmosaics.com or via phone at 781-635-8770
