San Francisco Mosaic

A little background…


Lillian Sizemore has been a professional artist for over 25 years and began working in tile and glass mosaics in 1995. Since then, she has designed and fabricated many commercial and fine art commissions, and conducted mosaic workshops for adults and children. She has traveled widely, happily photographing and studying mosaic sites, which resulted in her first book, A Guide to Mosaic Sites: San Francisco.

Lillian is active in the art and publishing worlds and worked as a professional graphic designer for many years. She has served on several non-profit boards including the National Executive Committee for the Graphic Artists Guild in New York, for ArtSpan, a San Francisco arts organization that sponsors a citywide Open Studios Program, and for the MadHousers of Chicago, a grassroots organization that built emergency shelter for homeless individuals. Working with THE GUILD books, she managed relationships with hundreds of artists in North America and sat on the publisher's Selection Committee. Currently, Sizemore serves on the board of FiftyCrows Foundation, a San Francisco-based non-profit organization that uses international documentary photography to inspire social change.

Lillian's continued studies and interests take her to the far reaches of the world and include history specializing in mid-century mosaic murals and social documentary photography, geometry, visionary art, mandalas, and advanced mosaic techniques. She holds degrees from Indiana University in Fine Arts-Printmaking and Italian,

Ms. Sizemore is a frequent Visiting Artist at Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland, and an invited instructor at the Getty Villa, in Los Angeles.
