Meet PieceMaker Member Mycentir Mosaics

Meet new PieceMaker member, Melissa, owner of Mycentir Mosaics on Etsy!

How did you come up with your Etsy Shop name?

My real name is Melissa K. McIntyre. My shop's name is Mycentir Mosaics and I came up with the idea for the shop name by scrambling the letters of my last name.

How long have you been creating mosaics? .. and what was your first mosaic?

I just started creating mosaics this year. A sunflower garden stone.

What other art do you do, if any?
I paint and draw.

What kind of shows have you been a part of?
I haven't yet but I do hope too be soon.

What would be your dream mosaic project?

My dream mosaic would be too do all of the backsplash in my kitchen a underwater sea mural.
Is being an artist your full time job?

I wish that being a full time artist was my job. That's my dream job. However, currently I am a student, server, and do room service for a hotel.

Tell us about your family!

I come from a large family of seven kids from a small town in Indiana. When I grew up we didn't have a lot of money and we recycled lots of items. That's made a huge impact on my art. As a result I reuse a lot of materials and love to go "junk" treasure hunting.

What are some of your favorite things about being part of the PieceMaker group?

How nice everyone is. Everyone gives advice, and is always laughing and having a good time. You can be having the worst day and these people are so positive and funny that it makes your day. I love the tips that can help you in other projects you do too.
