I’ve only been making mosaics for a little over a year, but I actually learned some of the skills to make them from when I was in college for graphic design! I’ve always been a creative and crafty type of person, handcrafting gifts for holidays, birthdays, and such. And a part of me has always loved seeing balloon art and intricate balloon displays, but I never thought it was a feasible or realistic career path for me.
After making some of my first mosaic templates for friends & family, I realized that I could actually build a whole business model around mosaics! I didn’t have to limit myself to the “graphic design” portion, just because that was the degree I had or the career path I was on. Right before this, I had quit a very secure corporate position to pursue a life with more art. So the fact that the process of making mosaics would allow me to tap into my graphic design skills, as well as, incorporating more crafting and art into my life. It felt like a no brainer that THIS is what I was meant to be doing, this was meant for me!
