Trish Metzner

A Tile Artist, Designer and Instructor from Philadelphia, PA, Trish creates all types of mosaic art from backsplashes to murals. After years working with arts organizations such as Philadelphia's Magic Gardens and The Village of Arts and Humanities, she developed personal methods informed by the legacy of past pioneers in the fields of mosaic, public art and arts education. She recently won international acclaim for directing a three-year mural project in rural Mexico, "The Great Wall of Zacatlan." From 2014-17, she taught mosaic to local volunteers and designed a multi-year plan of action for promoting creative industry in the small agricultural town. Her apprentices became a highly skilled team who are continuing to improve the artistic landscape of their town. Trish is available for commercial and residential tile projects. She also holds classes at her studio in East Falls, Philadelphia, PA and hosts tours and intercultural arts exchanges within the US and Mexico.
