ABOUT BONNIE

As an art educator with over two decades of experience, I’ve had the privilege of guiding people of all ages in discovering and nurturing their artistic talents. Most of these teachings have been through the mediums of mosaics and sculpture.

As the founder and owner of Maverick Mosaics, LLC, I take pride in crafting distinctive learning opportunities. In addition to my continuous teaching commitments, I’ve created numerous unique artworks for private and public spaces while maintaining my own studio practice since 1998.

Dedicated to broadening the reach of mosaic education, I authored two best-selling books. In both, I share my design and fabrication experience, technical expertise, and collaborations with other artists. Since 2014 I have been the exclusive instructor of Contemporary Mosaics for the Smithsonian Institution’s Studio Arts Program in Washington, DC.

My passion for fostering a love for community and public art in future generations led me to develop the Maverick Legacy program. Over the span of a decade, I collaborated with public school art teachers to create several impressive clay and mosaic “legacy” works in regional schools.

With Make it Mosaic Online, my goal is to ensure the sustainability of this art form by engaging and mentoring younger artists. Additionally, I aim to assist fellow art educators in seamlessly integrating mosaics into their curriculum.

Make it Mosaics Online builds on the achievements of Maverick Mosaics’ teaching history and the success of the Make it Mosaics YouTube Channel, which was developed in collaboration with my colleague Kim Wozniak. The information-packed channel has garnered over 2 million views across 100+ videos.
