About Me

Hello and welcome to my web site!  My name is Christine Brallier and I have been creating art since childhood and haven’t stopped! I grew up in Los Angeles studying art and music through high school. Then, after years as a preschool teacher, I received my M.A. in psychology, focusing on children and art therapy. In 2005, I discovered and fell in love with the art of mosaics. My art has been published in several books and my mosaics have been installed in public spaces in California, Texas, Michigan, Kentucky, and Australia Zoo. My children’s book, The Night Before Christmas, is illustrated with stained glass mosaics and was published in 2013. Thank you for visiting my site - I hope you enjoy my artwork!
