Toni Burrows is a mosaic artist. Her stunning works are a regular feature in our windows. Prints, canvas reproductions and cards are available of her works here

Toni began to make mosaics 25 years ago, She loved the vibrancy of the coloured pieces set off by the darkness of the wet grout, rather, like lead sets off glass in a stained glass window. Since then she has incorporated many other 3 dimensional pieces into her work: broken crockery, glass, jewellery. shells, stones and other recycled or found objects.

In 2015 she brought out her first book, “The Last Apple on the Tree” both written by herself and illustrated by her mosaics. Following on its success, she has just released “The Mermaid and the Tower” illustrated with a realm of new mosaics. The book is a fairy tale that includes and explores contemporary themes.  The story would suit a child of 8 years and older, but any adult who has experienced the enchantment of fairy tales and who has an appreciation of original art work is equally likely to enjoy it. In essence it would hold appeal for anybody willing to suspend disbelief and immerse themselves in a world of imagination

Toni’s entire house is full of mosaics and can usually be seen on the North Bristol Art Trail on the last weekend of November.
