New Zealand Mosaic Art

Janine Tate

I have always been an artist in one way or another.
Starting work in the art department at the Waikato Times in the eighties, I later moved to Graffix commercial art studio learning many new skills I still use today.
My mum was a Hamilton florist and I worked at Alison’s flower shoppe for her for a while before starting my little art business at home.
A move to Western Australia gave me opportunities doing markets for several years where I became known as The butterfly lady. I also had a butterfly shop for a while in Albany, Western Australia.
On returning to NZ I made butterflies, did my art and took a stained glass class at Leadlight products. I was hooked! Many classes later I ended up working for them teaching leadlighting, copper foiling and mosaic around 2007.
These days I work from our home in my studio gallery where I am blessed to work in many mediums.
I especially love design and creating mosaics using glass and upcycling china.
I am happy for you to visit my studio gallery in Hamilton by appointment.
