Mosaic Moments

Mosaic is the art of connecting broken pieces to form a new design. I use mosiacs to connect with the countries I live in, practicing and teaching the art to those around me to connect with people and enable others to connect with eachother.

Community Mosaics

In 2014, in Turkey, my friend Miriam explained the difficult situation refugee women were in, as they were not allowed to work and had little to do with their time. We both knew how time consuming making mosaics is and what impact working together on a communal project can have for peoples sense of community – this was how the Refugee Community Mosaic was born and what sparked my passion for making community mosaics with people around the world.




Since 2014 I have conducted several other community mosaic projects in Brazil and China. I gain great joy of taking on the art director role for these projects and am thrilled how working together not only provides a sense of connection, but also gives the initial design some surprising charactersistics.


About my latest community art happening in Beijing – project 116 – participants said:

Great project, great activity, great company, wonderful community art! Great Saturday! Thank you Gertrud.

Indeed, it was such a wonderful workshop. The joint efforts made the experience special. Music was also carefully selected that was  like a breeze touching the peaceful inner self in the early spring. Thank you Gertrud for the great time!

It is also a great honor to have received the SAMA scholarship 2020 to learn from the impressive “community arts & empowerment” project in Watsonville/CA.

Mosaic Moments


My name is Gertrud Müller. I am a mosaic artist who travels the world and uses art to connect with the people and places I live in. Originally from Germany, I learned the art of mosaic and mosaic conservation in Turkey, where I opened my first workshop and created my first community mosaic project. Since then I have lived in Brazil and Beijing, China where I have used local materials to create art inspired by the local culture.

I host workshops of multiple kinds, including individual studio sessions, group workshops, team building workshops in organizations, and community based projects.

If you are interested in my works, or in booking a session with me, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Team building with mosaic

….our work here (at UNDP office) is so tight and intense it was a unique experience. I managed to stop the time together with my colleagues never mentioning work, every one of us focusing on their mosaic. It was just a moment of colors, a universe of colors. I was distracted like a child without thinking of my schedule. We turned into children and we had a lot of fun. I managed to stop  time and entered into this marvelous experience …

Mosaic making together is a powerful symbol for working in a team. Thousands of parts are being put together to form a single design. I use this characteristic to costum design corporate team building projects that have two outcomes: a stronger team bond and a decorative mosaic displayed inside the work environment.
