Kia Ora! I’m Michelle Arnold, a mosaic and abstract artist from rural Te Puke. I have an active appreciation for all things creative, inspired by visual beauty and love to re-create my experiences through my own works.

My first burst of inspiration was an enormous Dean Buchanan painting, which conjured a series of intensely coloured paintings. Secondly, were the off-cuts of glass from my mum’s leadlighting, which I arranged onto rocks and made little garden features.

The mosaics stuck and is ever evolving… working with the pattern and colour from ceramic and glass is satisfying to me, giving old broken china and new place in time in a completely different way.

People can find, view and order my work through my Facebook page. I have been creating mostly customized pieces lately, including animals, mirrors and memorial stones.
