Adult Visual Arts – Mosaic
Mark Brody has been a working artist since graduating from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. with degrees in art and education. He received a “real-life”, hands-on degree in construction when he decided to build a house with his wife while living in Taos, New Mexico. Fortunately, both the house and the marriage are still standing after twenty years.
It was through this process that Mark recognized his passion for building as well as tile work, and he has practiced mosaic for the past 18 years. He has learned the importance of choosing the correct substrate, adhesive and tesserae, and his finished works are located in public spaces such as libraries, hospitals and community centers.
His latest project is creating a how-to mosaic book featuring projects that are situated in the garden, and will be published in 2015 by Timber Press. Mark currently inspires others by teaching art in schools and art centers throughout the Portland area.
