Florida Favorites: Memories in Mosaics by Christine Burgess


Mosaic artist Christine Burgess of Melbourne has a background in interior design and has been working with Mosaics for 8 years. All of Christine's work is designed to be functional and with everyday use in mind.




"When I create my pieces I keep in mind the colors, textures and balance of the design similar to what you might do in designing a room. I like to have a little 'bling' in each one so I add jewelry to nearly all my pieces. This has become my signature."
