Sewailu Auzins

I am a Canadian artist living in Victoria, BC. Originally studied art, specializing in painting and textiles, I became a glass artist in 1999. Once introduced to mosaics in 2004 I immediately loved the combination of colour, texture and freedom this medium allowed.

In 2006 I travelled to Italy to study with Luciana Notturni at the Mosaic Art School in Ravenna. Here we studied how to work with traditional mosaic materials and techniques. In Italy I was introduced to Smalti, which is a beautiful glass manufactured in Venice.

I continue to grow, learn, and explore new mosaic techniques through courses in North America. I enjoy taking away new techniques that I can develop and add to my own style of mosaicking. Some mosaic "masters" I have trained with and other courses I have enjoyed:

Into the Third Dimension with Marian Shapiro
Sculpted Mosaic Mirrors with Sharra Frank
Sculpture with Darjit with Jennifer McGee
Mosaicking with Beads with Sharra Frank
Layered Glass Mosaics with Yulia Hanansen
Radical Dimensions with Kelley Knickerbocker
Stained Glass Portraiture with Carol Shelkin

My mosaic art has been shown in international juried art shows in Canada and the USA.
