Mosaic and fiber artist Karen Earnhardt, with Flower Floozy Designs, will be a guest at the Kaleidoscope Cultural Arts Festival from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27 in downtown Kannapolis.
“I began my business about six months ago after several friends asked me to make mosaic and fiber items for them. I am inspired by the beauty of nature and most of my mosaics and the felted pocketbooks and other items relate to the garden and flowers.”
“My business name came from my gardening obsession. My friends who are serious gardeners are obsessed with shade and foliage but I am obsessed with the colors and explosion of designs of flowers and things that grow in the sun. ”
“I love Dahlias, Zinnias, Peonies, Roses, and pretty much anything that is colorful. This obsession, then led to an obsession with birds and a lot of my mosaics are related to birds. I make mosaic bird houses, birdbaths, and gazing balls. I have attached some pictures of my items for you to see.”
