These mosaics are by Pat Shields who is a specialist radiographer with the Macmillan Team in the Sussex Cancer Centre.
I started mosaicing about 5 years ago when I needed my kitchen tiled but my budget didn’t stretch to a tiler! So I tiled the kitchen with broken pieces of china and mirror resulting in a Gaudi style kitchen. Looking at the kitchen always made me feel cheerful so I wanted something for the sitting room. I decided to start with the title JOY and see what I could come up with. After a few months sketching ideas and ruminating I came up with this idea, dancing naked under a full moon …
Love and peace in my mind are 2 of the few really important things in life so they had to have representation. The bird is a loose description of a bird of Paradise, not a dove.
I work as a specialist radiographer with the Macmillan Team in the Sussex Cancer Centre. I have worked with cancer patients since I was 19 , I am now 61 , this has perhaps taught me what is important and given me a deep appreciation of my own good health.
Love, Peace and Joy are amongst the best things in life and they are all free!
