Kim Emerson Mosaics

San Diego, CA

“Kim Emerson describes the world as “a mosaic made up of various cultures, conditionings, environments, time and space each having their unique circumstance and yet bonded by the cement of life itself.” Emerson specializes in mosaic design and fabrication and in 2004 established Kim Emerson Mosaics, LLC. In 2005, she received recognition for her mosaic work at the Society of American Mosaic Artists annual conference. She was also awarded the Orchid Award presented for excellence in landscape design and public art for “Carley’s Magical Gardens” at the Children’s Hospital of San Diego. Emerson received her Master of Science degree in Historic Preservation of Architecture at the University of Oregon. She currently maintains a studio in San Diego, CA.”

Of her work, Kim says: “Expression as an artist for me comes through the medium of mosaics in the form of murals and three-dimensional sculpture. I carefully cut geometric “tesserae” of glass, ceramic tile and/or found objects and assemble them in a way that creates something representational or abstract. Mosaics are like permanent textured paintings that reflect light and shadows. Most of my work is designed to be site specific. The challenge for me is to design in harmony with the natural landscape or existing architectural design, thus reflecting environment and culture.”
