Wanda Southern Geske
Wanda grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of SW Virginia. She studied art throughout high school and was art club president. She went on to study commercial art
at Virginia Tech.
Wanda was a graphic designer and art director
throughout her career. She worked for ad agencies, publishers, and more. She won multiple national
awards for publication design.
She went on to co-own a printing company in Florida. Wanda won six ribbons at the 2019 SBPC Art Show. She also won a First Place Blue Ribbon in the 3-D category at the 2021 show for her "Be The Light" angel.
Wanda likes to work in pique assiette -- a style of mosaic that incorporates pieces of broken ceramics, plates, glass, vintage jewelry and other found objects into the design. This type of mosaic must take in ideas of lateral thinking, humor, the art of recycling and the significance of found objects. She has recently worked in alcohol inks, flow acrylics, resin work, but always returns to her love of mosaics. Wanda is a member of the Society for American Mosaic Artists.
