March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s artist is American mosaicist, jewelry-maker and expert etch-a-sketcher, Gila Rayberg. She makes fantastic mosaics in rich colors in sizes ranging from hand-held to installation. Her subjects are animals & people, natural & geometric patterns. It turns out she’s also an expert etch-a-sketcher and has made many great portraits for the party using this difficult medium.

You can see Gila’s artwork on her flickr imagestream:

And on her website:

Photos of Gila and other artists’ portraits of her can be seen here:
