Alison Turner is a professional mosaic artist known for her quirky approach to mosaic art. She creates artwork for gallery exhibitions, private collections and public installations.

A Bit About The Artist...
Alison is a mosaic artist based in Cornwall. Working from her home studio, she produces unique and highly collectible artwork that has a distinctive personal style. Alison has previously exhibited in a gallery in Florence, Italy and her artwork is in private collections worldwide. She has completed large scale public commissions at schools and colleges.
"I create unique artwork using recycled vintage bone china, broken and discarded pottery, glass, ceramic tile and porcelain ornaments. As well as wall art, I also create 3D sculptures and alter mannequins to mosaic. I also create my own 3D substrates for mosaic using a sculpting medium called Pal Tiya.
Alison has taken part in a 'Wild in Art' event, Worcester Stands Tall. Her mosaic giraffe sculpture titled 'Girafficorn' raised £15,000 at auction for St Richard's Hospice. There were 30 8ft sculptures on the Wild in Art trail and collectively they raised an incredible £210,400. More info about this project can be found on social media.
She has since completed another two Wild In Art Sculptures, a giant hare and a whale tail which were private commissions. You can get in touch via the contact form should you wish to discuss a commission of this kind.
