- Dave, Maureen and I traveled to Talwood State School to create a fabulous mosaic mural for the Centenary School Celebrations.  Lots of photos are on my OzMosaics Facebook Page and work in progress.  A tall mosaic pedestal was also completed.  The mural was made by mosaic artist Sandy Robertson, with the assistance of mosaic artist Maureen Randolph, teachers, school students, past school students, visitors, community and friends.  It was wonderful getting to know Talwood, it's history, family, farms, businesses and of course the school students and teachers.  We worked very hard, day and night over 2 weeks to complete the detailed project.  The design was put together by Sandy with input from the School P & C of images special to Talwood.  Features such as the tall water tower, historic rail station, old school house, school kids in uniform, tree of knowledge, school name, logo, farming of cattle, sheep, cotton, wheat... the silos, every changing colours of the fields, wide expanses of blue skies, the river and much more.  The school students were so eager and worked very hard learning to shape, nip, glue, grout and work out colours and mosaic design.  It's was a fantastic experience for all.  Thanks so much to everyone who made our stay in the old Headmasters house so happy and pleasant.  So many people helped out in so many mosaic ways.  Check out Talwood State School on Facebook for lots of photos of the huge Centenary Celebrations!

A fabulous mosaic mural featuring the Juiced TV logo, made in 2017 by kids, friends, and families at the Queensland Children's Hospital. Sandy Robertson and mosaic friends worked at the hospital with the children, staff, and families to make the mural on a large piece of cement-based sheeting. The mural was pre-sealed with Laticrete Hydroban (available from OzMosaics Studio and Online Web Store).  Tesserae (mosaic materials), grout and adhesives were donated by OzMosaics.  The kids were so creative and Juiced Tv crew are awesome!
Here is the link on Youtube!


 2018:  The Mosaic Mural is installed in the new Juiced TV Boardroom!

In my current role as Queensland State Rep for MAANZ, I organised a MAANZ Queensland Mosaic Exhibition at Percolator Gallery, Paddington Brisbane Queensland. A wonderful support group ably assisted me to plan, prepare, curate and host a fabulous mosaic art exhibition with 54 mosaics beautifully showcased at the Percolator Gallery.  Thanks to everyone who worked very hard behind the mosaic scenes!
If you would like to join MAANZ visit this link for information on membership, events, symposiums, exhibitions, and Australian mosaic artists or contact me Sandy Robertson, Qld MAANZ State Rep via the MAANZ website.

The mosaics shown below were my entries in the MAANZ Qld Exhibition, titled "A walk in the Park" and "Made to Last". 
"Made to Last" was awarded a Highly Commended certificate.  The tesserae were honed out of old concrete roof tiles, using an Italian Hammer and Hardie (available for purchase at OzMosaics Studio or shop online in our Mosaic Online Store.
