Toni Burrows

Toni Burrows studied Fine Art to degree level at Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham where her creative focus was mostly life painting and drawing. She began to make mosaics 20 years ago, her first inspiration being a small tile of a starfish that a friend had made. 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 is currently working on her second book entitled ” The Abalone Mermaid”. A wide range of her cards and prints are available for purchase.

Toni’s work can be seen on the North Bristol Art Trail on the last weekend of November, at the Redland May Fair on the Monday bank holiday and occasionally by appointment.
