Fine artist Lelia DeMello has painted original fine art for over 20 years. Her paintings have been shown in numerous fine art galleries and exhibitions all over the Country and collected by prominent corporations, celebrities, politicians, and exclusive resorts. She is now taking her artistic flare for design and create fine art mosaics. Lelia has admired and loved this art form for many years and now is excited to introduce her own designs and work with clientele to create design specific mosaics for installation in their homes, offices, and more. Artist Statement  I've experimented with many different traditional mediums to find  one that expresses my creative urge. Creating mosaics is completely fulfilling because it is not just designing, but the total satisfaction of physically fabricating a work of art. The variety  of colors and  textures  provide me with infinite  possibilities. My creations and designs are a personal reflection of my surroundings. The world, nature, people and it's diverse cultures are all influences in my work. My art and designs are an attempt to recreate  the beauty of nature in a different medium. My goal is to  share experience and discovery of natures  wonder. A thrill you  may feel when you can see the smallest detail interpreted in large scale. As magical as art itself, mosaic is timeless, and complex. It's a vehicle I can create original and dynamic designs, threw one of the oldest art forms and into the new century. Lelia's fine art mosaics are exhibited in Gallery Two Ten. Colorado Spring's premier fine art gallery.(719) 632-2132
