artist bio

Before becoming a mosaic artist Miriam Sushman worked as a photojournalist in the USA and Israel. Her passion for mosaics was ignited seven years ago while working on a mixed media table. Having learned to work with a variety of mosaic methods and materials, she has taught workshops and classes to children, teens and adults. In 2019 she led a group of Grand Avenue Club members and staff in the creation of a community mural entitled “Lake Michigan”, which is now installed in the Water Street entrance.

artist statement

I find that mosaics, more than any other art that I have done is a meditative experience in which the artist loses herself and the materials themselves guide the creative process. I work spontaneously only after thinking about intended projects, sometimes months or a year in advance. I am inspired by nature, my childhood collections and the many discarded objects that I find or buy. With each new material that I learn to use, new ideas come forth and in this way I continue to grow as an artist. Working on community mosaics and teaching are especially rewarding.
