Melanie Russell Mosaic Artist
I hope you found something of interest in this small sample selection of my artwork. However if you would like me to make something bespoke to your taste/colour scheme then please do contact me to discuss your requirements. It would give me great pleasure to work with you to achieve something that is individual to you or as a gift for someone special.
A recent commission arose from having stayed at the fabulous Mill House Cottage & Hare Lodge in Northumberland. On discovering that I make mosaics, the owner requested three leaping hares for the splendid master bedroom of Hare Lodge. They are pictured above in their new home and I look forward to visiting them again one day!
I also enjoy memory projects. I have found that many families hang onto china tea sets that have been passed down for sentimental reasons, but they are often stashed away in cupboards or lofts, neither seen nor used. Having a mosaic piece made using your own china is a meaningful way to remember someone. This bespoke piece of art could even become an heirloom to be passed down through the generations.
A lovely lady from Yorkshire, Michele, contacted me recently to ask if I could make a special gift for her sister Julie and husband Keith's Ruby Wedding, using her late mother's china.
Michele wrote to me after the celebrations: "Julie and Keith absolutely loved your mosaic. My sister shed a few tears. I couldn’t have chosen a better gift for her. Thank-you once more for your effort, the mosaic certainly was a hit. A precious heirloom that our family will enjoy for years to come."
