Professional mosaicist creating wildlife-inspired mosaics. Usually made from stained glass, these wildlife mosaics feature birds, trees and animals and are represented in vibrant, modern, flowing style. I always find that the challenge is to create a piece that looks realistic in the unforgiving medium of stained glass. As glass is very rigid, it can’t be blended like paint, and compromising on glass colour is usual as there is a finite range of colours to choose from. Grout is crucial in creating movement and flow. Not only where the grout goes, but also the grout colour, can break a piece apart or bring it together. I often find this the hardest part.
I’ve recently been experimenting in a completely different style, using a wide variety of different matierials to make much more abstract, earthy mosaics. They often include a semi-precious stone and the aim is to embody the properties of this stone within the piece.
There will be mosaics, giclee prints and cards available at the exhibition.
Commissions are welcome.

Liane Stevenson is a professional artist living and working in North Somerset. She trained in Fine Art, sculpture at UWE. Her work divides into three main areas, portraiture, landscape, and work inspired by the natural world.
In her portraiture Liane is not concerned with a photographic likeness, but rather to capture a glimpse of the character of her subject and make a connection between the sitter and the viewer.
In her landscapes she is inspired by the rhythms found in the natural and agricultural landscape, and in the architectural geometry of the cityscape. She uses mixed media and collage to represent and enhance the decorative aspect of these qualities, whilst maintaining a sense of place.
Liane’s interest in the natural world is really a celebration of the diversity of our fauna, and the current threat it finds itself under.
She hopes to inspire her viewers to enjoy and help conserve our environment. Primarily though, Liane has an immense joy in the artistic process, drawing, applying paint and experimenting with colour and materials.
