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 a 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!
