Hildreth Meiere

Hildreth Meiere's mosaics were what first made me want to be a mosaic artist. I saw her work at a chapel at the Wernersville Jesuit Center, and wrote her name on a scrap of paper. I found it later, after I'd started making mosaics, and looked her up. Her range of work is amazing, including medallions at Radio City Music Hall and murals at the National Academy of Sciences.
