Marian Shapiro has been working full time in mosaic since becoming obsessed by the art form in 2003. She is fascinated by the creative tension of using ancient techniques and traditional materials to make contemporary work. She frequently works in series so that she can explore a theme in depth. Marian is fond of a visual pun and is probably best known for her dimensional works which give the illusion of flowing material. Her artwork is shown and collected nationally and internationally. Marian’s work has been featured in many books and magazines.
Marian is a much sought after speaker and teacher both nationally and internationally and her popular regular classes at BMCAC cater for both beginners and experienced students.
