About Emily Mathews

I am a self taught glass and mosaic artist living in Palo Alto, CA. I spent my professional life as a computer engineer and restaurant owner.

I began working in glass many years ago making stained glass panels. Children and work intervened and when I came back to glass, I was delighted to discover the freedom of mosaics.

Mosaic art resonates with me ... not only because you get to break stuff and put it back together, but because of the interplay of light on glass, the glass telling its story within my story, and the visual flow of the shapes, outlines and placement of the materials.

I love to represent the natural world, people, and interesting abstractions. I sat back to evaluate my pieces, looking for a theme - what do all the pieces have in common? I pondered, and realized the common thread. They are all made in love.
