Larissa Strauss is a mosaic artist based out of Ventura, California. Her primary medium is glass mosaic, and the themes of her non-commissioned, original work focuses mainly on magical elements in the natural world. However, she creates custom, commissioned mosaics for public and private clients.
Larissa has been working actively as a full-time mosaic artist since 2000. In that period, she has completed over 100 private commissions. The private commissions have ranged in size from 10-inch squares to three feet by four feet. Currently, she is working on an entire wall length mosaic for a private residence in Ventura.
The larger public commissions Larissa has completed include a 26-foot mosaic wall (approximately 100 square feet) that sits at the entrance to a popular park, and a series of eight mosaics depicting the history of Ventura County that are permanently installed on the facade of the newly renovated Museum of Ventura County.
Larissa also regularly teaches mosaic classes on Monday and Tuesday nights in Ventura. If you are interested in taking a glass mosaic class, please contact Larissa.
Larissa also creates custom, one-of-a-kind, fused-glass jewelry and accessories that she sells year round out of her studio, but mostly during the holiday season.
