Chris Silkwood is a dedicated and enthusiastic mosaic artist. She learned the art of mosaic approximately fourteen years ago while living in Australia. Chris had the opportunity to study with the artists of ArtBusters, a renowned mosaic studio in Brisbane, Australia. After returning to the United States, she also took a summer course at the famed Mosaic Art School in Ravenna, Italy.

Chris has blended her training and creative instincts to develop a style that is uniquely her own. Her work is a study in classic mosaic with very contemporary styling. Her intention has always been to honor the ancient technique but with modern design application. She believes there are no boundaries with mosaic and the opportunity to work with such magnificent color in the glass she uses is incredibly fulfilling. Her art adorns private homes and businesses throughout the U.S. and overseas.
