Lizard by Angela Kingshott

…and isn’t he a beauty!

The gorgeous lizard on mesh is by Angela Kingshott, who is wellknown to those who frequent the Yahoo groups Mosaic Addicts, MAO and Mosaic Critics.

So a few words about me… I live in England, on the outskirts of
the market town of Aylesbury which is about 15 miles north of
Oxford… I have been doing mosaics for over 3 years now… am a
group organiser for the British Association for Modern Mosaic, am an
exhibited artist having taken part in BAMM exhibitions and Oxford
Art Weeks. My work can also be found in a designer gallery.
Once I heard about the challenge I knew that I had to take part. I
am madly keen on wildlife as if we cannot look after it and the
planet what hope is there for mankind? and I was deeply touched by
Steve Irwin’s approach, his ability to involve people from all
generations and hand on approach – just how I approach mosaic, and
very upset by his untimely death.

I feel that it would be very appropriate if the mosaic world comes
together on the project to provide a fitting memorial for Steve. I
have already donated a lizard on mesh to the project – to get it off
to a flying start, and plan to do an Indian Elephant, as I have
learnt how much they meant to Steve, I also plan a croc, a bird and
who knows maybe a little bit of English wildlife might find its way
in there, just to reflect his global interest in wildlife and to
reflect that Aylesbury was the first place in the world to have a
hospital dedicated to wildlife… which outgrew its home to such an
extent that it is now in Thame and is called Tiggywinkles…
