Julie Hand

← Back to Tutors

Julie is a self-taught artist who has been working in mosaics for over 30 years. She came to mosaics following extensive work in textile arts as embroidery, knitting and quiltmaking and part of what she loves is the challenge of transferring from soft textile to such solid unyielding substance. She experiments with colour, texture and form, creating images that are inspired by memories, experiences and emotions.

Her own work work is created from stained glass which provides depths, tones and hidden secrets of colour and texture. These along with, dichroic glass, handmade beads, cabochons, millifiori, vintage jewellery, fossils, and other ephemera as media, enable her aim of the transference of an inorganic rigid substance into a resonating, emotive and living piece of art.
