One of my lovely friends on social media, Anel Anna Ebeirp, owns a very eye-catching paint mare called ‘Blondie’. I was keen to represent her beautiful horse in mosaic, and she kindly gave me permission. Blondie now has a son, who I would also like to use as reference one day.

Animals fascinate me, even those that many consider are not our friends. In this mosaic, I wanted to show the beautiful colour of the fur of a red fox. I am grateful to Holly Cannon, who took the beautiful photograph I used as a reference for this mosaic.
