About Margo Dobbins

Margo Dobbins
Artist Statement

My mosaic art pieces vary from practical garden pots and stepping stones to sculptural animal figures. The richness and possibilities of mosaic art is similar to quilting and I enjoy creating unique pieces but working with found materials: china shards, glass, jewelry, often tucking favorite animals or inspirational words into hidden corners as a surprise for the viewer.

Half of the joy of this art form lies in the finding and repurposing of hidden treasures. Once friends learned about my mosaics, stacks of porcelain cups and plates began appearing on my chair at work and at my doorstep. As my magpie’s nest of a stash began to grow so did my inspiration. I believe this is how the universe works; express your passion and it is assuredly fed.
