Prior to the workshop, Debra will have a phone call with you to help outline your plan, including color palette, materials and a template for your lady’s face (if needed). She will also provide you with measurements, should you wish to prepare some tesserae for trimming beforehand.

PRIOR TO THE WORKSHOP – VISION CALL
After a successful career as a corporate marketing executive, and a lifetime of collecting art, Debra tried her hand atmosaics. As the demand for her work started to grow from just family friends to commissions from fans across the country, Debra soon realized she had found her second calling.
Eight years later, Debra Mager is now an established and highly regarded self-taught mosaic artist traveling around the country to teach mosaic workshops and to participate in art festivals.
She has a penchant for creating dimensional, whimsical and rather unconventional mosaic works, which include her unique mosaic floral arrangements, birds and other creatures, as well her jeweled mirrors and mosaic shoes.
Cinderella Mosaics became her company name because Debra considers the discovery of her dormant artistical self an unexpected blessing, or “a true Cinderella story.”
Making mosaic art affords us the chance to reassemble broken parts and pieces into works of beauty. What could be more healing and rewarding than that?
– Debra Mager
