Inspired by whimsical and colorful art, Amie Millsap is a busy mother of four who loves to create pieces that are fun and exciting.
It all started while living in Bermuda where on certain beaches, pieces of china and glass would wash up on the beach, discarded trash from sailing vessels over hundreds of years. These pieces were used to create mosaic picture frames sent to family members with photos of the kids.
Amie’s sources of inspiration have been designer artists like Mary Engelbreit and Candice Olson and being a collector of Mary Engelbreit dishes, Amie could never part with the broken bits of cups and dishes that had met an untimely demise.
Upon returning to California, with several containers full of “material”, and some broken dishes, she met another mosaic artist was creating a fireplace mantle using the names and personal treasures of another family.
So this was the beginning of a new passion for Amie. Making mosaics with meaningful bits and treasures from a family’s life has become almost an obsession and the only way to sustain it is to sell a few to support her addiction.
Amie lives in Yorba Linda, California with her husband and four kids.
