“I have things in my head that are not like what anyone taught me — shapes and ideas so near to me, so natural to my way of being and thinking.”― Georgia O’Keeffe
I don't remember a moment in my life when I was not creating art but I do remember the moment I decided I wanted to use the art form of mosaic to express what I wanted to say as an artist. It is in this process especially that I find peace, purpose, and a way to say my truth out loud...with many little pieces. I constantly try to find a balance between the simple and the complex in my work. The subject and colors simple...and the movement within that subject...complex. This is what drives and challenges me to create my art. This challenge to create what I see all around me, in nature, humanity, life and the ironic can be seen in every mosaic I make. I like to encourage the viewer to look closer by adding elements or materials you are not expecting to see and always include some kind of hidden message in my work. This is my way of including you, the viewer, in the process. A reminder that it is necessary that we look closer at our world in order to truly appreciate all its many facets.
Anne Marie Price
Anne Marie Price is an award winning Southern California artist who specializes in creating Contemporary Mosaic Art but will on occasion go on a tangent and happily create other types of art. Her work is collected world wide by long time collectors and followers of her unique style and can be seen in exhibitions across the USA and overseas. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Anne Marie brings her love of the natural, human nature and the ironic (and sometimes iconic) and enjoys using the art form of mosaic to create her vision of inspiration.
Anne Marie is also known for her popular Temporary Mosaic Beach Art which she regularly creates on the beaches of Southern CA. These beach mosaics have been shared in local articles, local news programs as well on the CBS Sunday Morning Show.
Anne Marie began creating Mosaic Surfboards when she was invited to create a board for a local charity auction and received a People's Choice Award for this first mosaic surfboard dedicated to women surfers. This first launched her interest to create more mosaic on surfboards and eventually led to an instructional video with "Mosaic Arts Online" titled "Mosaic a Surfboard with Anne Marie Price". Anne Marie's mosaic surfboards have been featured in local articles and on the popular site "Bored Panada".
In 2020 and again in 2023 her mosaic art was invited to be part of exhibitions through the "Art in Embassies" US State Department program in Muscat, Oman and Antananarivo, Madagascar.
