Welcome to my tile sculpture store where you will find quality outdoor art from hummingbirds, fish, butterflies, to large dolphins and horses. I also have a line of wine cork item of 7 1/2 foot running horses, trees and custom orders are welcome.

Learning to ‘let go’ of loved ones is a lifelong challenge full of inspiration! My brother Craig, who passed away
from cancer at the young age of 38, had an obsession with dolphins. In his home, he had anything and everything ever created that depicted dolphins of all shapes and sizes.

Shortly after this tragic loss and in his honor, his girlfriend had a pool installed that was embellished with a blue border tile each with faint little jumping dolphins. At first glance of this pool I knew instantly what my creative side wanted to express.

It was that exact moment, the journey began! A five foot free standing dolphin was created.
It may not have always been my thoughts to be a mosaic artist, but after my first dolphin and much encouragement from friends that have stood with me through all of life’s changes I embraced the challenge to continue to create.


As an artist, after one project was completed, my mind never stopped thinking of what the next creation could be – of course, bigger, better and more. Why not enormous running horses….wild and free! From that came the rearing horses… I completely lost my mind…and found my own expanded artistic ability in the process!

Some lessons you literally stumble over in the process of learning them. Serendipity definitely describes how the sun happens to hit the sculptures at different times. It sparkles and dances through the hours until it slips into the final moments of sunset- my personal favorite time of day.

I hope that you will find the same playful, fun-loving spirit that embodied my big brother’s personality in each of my custom crafted mosaics made with loving memories. Success for me is that you enjoy them as much as I did in creating them!

I have been making tile mosaic sculptures since 2001 as "Dolphins by Cindy" and I recently changed my name to "Mosaics by Cindy" to encompass all the different products in my portfolio. The large sculptures are made of a very dense foam inside a layer of marine plywood, steel framing then cement and tile on the front. This allows the sculpture to be light enough to ship, move or install 5 feet up in the air. My mosaics are made for outdoor display as they are weather proof and have stood the test of time. The tile adds a pop of color and the glaze of the tile adds a sparkle with the light. I strive to raise the bar of quality in my product and making the shipping and receiving aspect of my business seamless. My art started as a grieving pastime for the loss of my brother that had a love for dolphins. Now it's a thriving joy with a heart and soul put into every piece.
