Estelle have been a mosaic artist for about 8 years and did a one day mosaic workshop as well as a five day Master in Mosaics Course in Venice at the Orsoni School of Mosaics in June 2016. She finds that glass makes her pictures come to life and she just loves that. She found the biggest challenge to be searching for the right colors/shades/patterns in the the stained glass. It would be a dream come true for her to see her work in an art gallery where it can be sold for what it is worth. She has developed a realistic style as she progressed and strives to give a accurate portrayal of mood, expression, beauty etc. She has won a Sanlam Portrait Award(of which hers was the only mosaic) and she also won gold with her piece "After the Storm" entered in the "This is mosaic art" 2017/18 in the intermediate class under the traditional category. She also won silver with her "Daydreaming" piece in the intermediate class under the traditional category.
