Portfolio – Garden Art

What is the difference between Indoor Art and Garden Art you may ask… The difference is in the materials. For the garden, water proof/resistant substrates, such as cement and cement board are used. Sculptures are carved from styrofoam, then covered with overlapping pieces of mesh tape and a few coats of cement before tile is applied.  Adhesives include thin-set and silicon. To finish up, a sealer is used to protect the tile and grout against the elements.

As with anything left outdoors, a mosaic can take on a unique weathered character, which can change over time and be quite beautiful.

  1. HI Jane
    My daughter recently lost her beloved 14 year old beautiful Siberian Husky and I told her about your mosaics at Viva mexico and how gorgeous they are. I thought maybe you could create a mosaic portrait in his image to help her cope with her loss. Her name is Mackenzie and I’d love to connect you if you think this is possible.
    Thanks much
