Discover Series: Introduction to Mosaics with Svetlana Protko

Let your imagination go wild and create your own (100% unique!) Happy Leaf mosaic.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

After 20 years of working as an Engineer I found out that my real passion lies in mosaics and handmade crafts. With a decade of living experience in Asia, Europe and North America, I have gathered a lot of cultural knowledge and creativity. I attempt to highlight these unique traits in whatever I make. Colour has always been at the heart of every piece of artwork I’ve ever created from simple drawings to my most elaborate mosaic pieces. The goal of my workshop is to share my passion and bring happiness and joy to others through creativity and craft!
