Dragonflies are beautifully coloured, iridescent little creatures. And they are a symbol of transformation and change. And of light and joy. 

One of my first ever mosaics was a dragonfly. I’d previously worked with stained glass, so cutting large glass shapes to use in the wings was what came instinctively to me. Any dragonflies are good subject to allow lots of colour play.

And I have continued to make them – they just look good, flying across a wall or fence!
