Crystal D’Abbraccio is a mosaic artist that finds great pleasure in teaching mosaics to diverse learners of all ages. She enjoys creating and instructing others how to use mosaics as a way to inspire and spread joy to communities everywhere. Furthermore, she believes that mosaic art can also encourage healing from trauma, illness and loss. In many ways, the process of creating a mosaic can be used as a healing approach to personal growth and self reflection.
Mosaic work is an assembly of many pieces, sometimes broken, to create a larger and more beautiful whole. When creating mosaic art, we are “picking up the pieces” in a literal sense but also in a very personal and spiritual way. The mind and body integration of mosaic therapy can be an empowering and cathartic experience for all to enjoy.
Please email Crystal if you would like to host a workshop or have a custom mosaic piece created for you or a loved one.
