anja hertle mosaic artist



Anja’s greatest passion is creating three-dimensional art pieces by patiently assembling recycled dishes, tile and coloured glass as well as interesting found objects like old twisted forks, shiny beads and buttons.

All materials are combined to create colourfully surprising pictures of flowers, beautiful architectural structures and scenes of children in everyday life. Anja loves working in the three-dimensional using the colours and textures of her materials to create a story.

Anja was born in Germany, studied interior design at Ryerson in Toronto and for seventeen years, along with her husband, two kids and a golden retriever, has called the vibrant city of Calgary home. Seven years ago Anja and her family moved to the beautiful rolling hills of Northumberland County in Ontario to settle in a storybook historic home in Grafton, just east of Cobourg. Anja and her husband have converted  an old garage into a bright and cheery studio, where the beautiful scenic surroundings of their property are going to provide endless creative inspiration. 

Anja enjoys sharing her love of mosaics with adults and children through teaching in her studio as well as taking her workshops on the road to work with students from Kindergarden to Grade 12  in Northumberland, in and around Toronto and Eastern Ontario.

Even though Anja has now made Ontario her home province she will continue to accept commissions for shipping to Alberta, the rest of Canada and the United States. She is currently expanding her work into galleries in Ontario. Please check this website frequently for info on upcoming shows and workshops.
