I have an interest in both mosaics and jigsaw puzzles. Simple tile mosaics can be fascinating in both their designs and flexibility of pattern composition. They can be abstract or realistic. The CP drawings below were inspired by the patterns on the floor of a shopping centre in Coffs Harbour (NSW, Australia).
Over the past 12 months I’ve been working on jigsaw compositions using previous work as a starting point. The results have been very encouraging, the bonus being that I’ve seen my older work in a completely different way. My first effort, “Hyland’s Flat Deconstructed”, was a finalist in the 2018 Fire of Fires Art Prize.

mypicturepuzzle.com were kind enough to send me a copy of my latest drawing with a jigsaw template to give me an idea on how it would look. I can see the potential and hopefully I’ll have some jigsaw puzzles manufactured.
