Catherine Gamble

I am a local mixed media artist, living in Long Beach, who started out in a family of painters and lucked into a mosaic workshop at Laguna Sawdust Festival about 8 or 9 years ago, and found my medium.Which is to say, mixed media because what I do isn’t traditional mosaics, but often a 3-D rendering using all kinds of materials in putting together an art piece.I love metal and wire in particular, wood of course, ceramics and glass (including broken up safety glass) and other things like old jewelry and seashells.I also started out trying to use as many recovered materials as possible and only when I started using stained glass did I use new(although I buy scraps from local stained glass studios).I have always worked from home until I recently found a perfect little studio in the neighborhood.
