"Her mosaics are all created with glass. She favors glass because of the large variety of colors, and she will often mix in beads, mirror, millefiori and smalti. If creating a mirror, she will use a base like MDF board because it's lighter than other wood and it doesn't warp, (it's not for outside use however). She also uses Weldbond glue which dries extremely hard and is non-toxic. Checking her edges and grinding the sharp ones is a vital step so no one cuts themselves. When the glass is finally laid, and she is happy with the outcome, she will grout the entire piece. The final step is a grout sealer."
Manon was born and raised in Quebec, Canada, but now lives in Dublin, Ohio with her family and her dog, Otis, an adorable and feisty pug. She recently admitted to feeling creatively trapped over the years. "I was not letting my creativity come from my heart. It came from my head instead. It wasn't until recently that I realized I can produce something that I'm truly passionate about...... a way of expressing myself from my soul." One look at her mosaics and mixed media paintings and you will see her heart and passion at work. To see more of her works, visit her blog HERE. And, her website, HERE. You will discover that her other love is animals. Her website is (appropriately) called, Hoochie Poochie Studios and painting pet portraits is another one of her passions. ~From her blog and website with consent.
