KERRY THARP

Mosaics

I’ve practiced art for over 20 years as a way to bring balance to my life. It provides me with the opportunity to create, connect with others and bring myself back to center. I enjoy working in watercolor, fiber, clay sculpture. However, art glass has mesmerized me for as long as I can remember – the colors invoke emotion and I'm intrigued by how those swirls are formed in the glass! With the desire to learn the art of stained glass but the lack of access to instruction, I began the practice of mosaic. I soon found that mosaic allowed for endless possibilities in working with this rich, yet transparent medium.  This freedom satisfied me and kept me from pursuing stained glass. Though I am self-taught, I have sought out instruction in art classes and through self-disciplined study. I've had many informal teachers along the way. I am honored to be a member of the Cedarburg Artists' Guild and the League of Milwaukee Artists.
