"When I was young my crayons were in rainbow order.
For as long as I can remember art has been a part of me. Like many artists, I’ve dabbled in many mediums. I have found mosaics, combining all my artistic experiences. I have been told I'm 'painting with glass'.
When I work with glass creating mosaic art, I sense a harmony and familiarity form my youth.
My glass is in rainbow order.
Carol Shelkin, artist and instructor creates fine art mosaics for galleries, architectural installations, private residents and community projects including weeklong and weekend workshops worldwide.
