About the Artist
Tell us about yourself…
My name is Judy Maynard and I am originally a stained glass artist. Over the years I have dabbled in many other mediums and love to experiment with texture, color and design.
Mosaics seemed like a natural progression for me as I started to transition to other types of work. As I learned of other mediums I discovered that paper was much more adaptable than traditional glass or ceramic tiles, while being far less expensive and available. I found I really enjoyed creating my own tiles from repurposed papers. Many of my tiles are made from brown grocery bags that have been painted and created.
Paper mosaics have become a steady go to for both creating unique art pieces and as well as a great subject to teach workshops.
