Lorraine Meade

Color, texture, line, and form come together piece by piece in the work of mosaic artist Lorraine Meade. From the intricate details in her smallest piece of wearable mosaics to the 40-foot long mosaic wave adorning the walls of the University of Richmond’s Heilman Dining Center, Lorraine’s art reveals curiosity, whimsy, and beauty.

In addition to using traditional elements, Lorraine infuses colorful stained glass, dichroic glass, beads, buttons, shells, mirrors, and more. Her playful side appears in works using Scrabble tiles, Dominoes, and other game pieces. Articles describing her award-winning work have appeared in Southern Living, Richmond Magazine, and River City Magazine.

In addition to her work available at Crossroads Art Center, Lorraine offers pieces for sale, by appointment, from her working studio gallery at Heartspace Studios in Midlothian and at art shows in Central Virginia.  She also provides group and individual classes in creating mosaics. A schedule of classes is available on her website

Lorraine is a member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists and the Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association. She is available for custom mosaic commissions and residential or commercial installations. Contact her, and she'll put all the pieces together for you!
