            Artist of the Month: February 2023

We’re excited to introduce, Alicia Tapp, the ShardWorx Artist of the Month! Alicia is a is a San Antonio-based artist who specializes in mosaic murals. After a career in fashion illustration, Alicia expanded her artistic pursuits to include glass mosaic work. Alicia's mosaics feature small pieces of glass and/or colored stones pieces together to form patterns and pictures. She crates fully hand-cut mosaics from natural marble and glass utilizing the same techniques as the Greeks, Romans, and Byzantines for one-of-a-kind works of art now found in countless homes and businesses.

Here's Alicia's story in her own words:

I began my artistic journey as a fashion illustrator in NYC, illustrating for world renowned companies like Gucci, Women's Wear Daily, etc. Through my creative process I was recruited by a world wide shoe company designing and creating slippers and shoes for huge licensed companies, including Hello Kitty, Thomas the Engine, Teenage Mutant Ninjas, Strawberry Shortcake, and more.

For the past 13 years I have been transferring Images onto tiles for indoor and outdoor, commercial and residential projects and have an excellent reputation in quality and customer service. Kiln-fired tiles are guaranteed for a lifetime.

Our Mosaic Murals are hand cut. Each image you see can be redesigned and adjusted for color and are available in fabulous sparkly glass or gorgeous natural stones. Our mosaics can also festure your favorite photos of yourself, pet ,travels, and more and can be redesigned as a mosaic mural. Mosaic murals can ship all over the world.
