Sonia's recently finished four large mosaic murals for Children's Medical Center of Dallas. The walls, each approximately 8' high by 17' wide are be featured on four new patient floors. Created from a varied mix of materials, the mosaics are designed to be visually stimulating as well as texturally engaging. Many thanks to Mitchell Associates, the Interior Architecture firm, for the professional renderings of Sonia's designs. The Nature Wall was recently featured on the cover of Healthcare Design Magazine's Architectural Issue.
News flash! The mosaic walls at Children's Medical Center won an international Spectrum Award recognizing creativity
and achievement in the use of tile in residential and commercial design. The awards are presented at Coverings each year and is sponsored by the Tile Council of America, the Association of Ceramic Tile Manufacturers of Spain, Assopiastrelle (the Italian tile association), the National Tile Contractors Association and the Ceramic Tile Dealers Association.

Each curved wall has a theme:
Shapes, Symbols, Balloons and Nature. Not
only do the elements change size and color as they move across the wall,
but the background also changes color as it flows from left to right.
The 'fresco grout' is unique and created by layering the colors by hand.
