Linda Mahoney creates many forms of mosaic art using stained glass, recycled material, metal, tile, wood beads, and leather. She likes the feel and colors of stained glass. “There is a warmth in reds, oranges, and yellows and something soothing about blues, greens, and browns,” she says. “I can take one look at a piece of brown glass for example and see a tree limb forming. Many times when I wake from a dream or return from a long walk, I know immediately what I want to create.”
The inspiration for her art first came from her sister Betty. Years ago, she watched her create wonderful pieces of artwork using bits of glass, metal, and beads. “She is an amazing artist who truly inspires me,” Mahoney says of her sister.
While it may have started as a hobby, it has grown to so much more. “I have been given a ‘gift’ to create art that touches people. Knowing it brings them so much joy makes me want to continue for many years to come” says Mahoney.
Mahoney and her husband, Charly, moved to Mountain Home 43 years ago and raised their family. Before retiring, she worked in the medical field for 34 years. She can be reached by phone, (870)425-2536 or (870)404-7433, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
