Nothing could have been further from her thoughts when we moved to Cyprus that she would become an experienced professional in the art of mosaic making.
The mosaics on the walls of the Vatican, on the floors of ancient Greek and Roman Villas are one type of large scale mosaic which you view from a distance.
isobel is into a much finer form of the art where the pieces are much smaller and the end results much more intricate - she often cuts a 1 inch tile into 128 pieces to work with !

In the beginning, Isobel did it as a hobby and many family and friends in Cyprus, the UK and in the USA have examples of her work in their homes.
Recently, having seen her work, people have been giving her commissions to create specific designs - not exactly a living but very useful pocket money !!
