JoAnn is the author of the first book that I bought in mosaics and as inspired me since :

"The Art of Mosaic Design: A Collection of Contemporary Artists"

She also has written "Mosaic Sourcebook"


"Mosaic Art and Style: Designs for Living Environments"
JoAnn Locktov

Mosaic Art and Style, a stunning follow-up to The Art of Mosaic Design, is a celebration of how mosaics can be integrated into our lives. Author JoAnn Locktov explores our fascination with mosaic art and illustrates how artists have crafted architectural installations, decorative, and functional objects that have added immeasurably to living environments. Readers will enjoy seeing how mosaic art can be applied to every surface imaginable with a panoply of materials. Mosaic Art and Style tells the story of how the projects were conceived and fabricated from the artists’ own point of view. It will confirm some conceptions and shatter others.

Locktov has forged special relationships with a multitude of artists, who allowed her to feature their work in Mosaic Art and Style. Through these relationships, Locktov takes the reader into the world of the artist and gives them a behind-the-scenes pass into their workshops where she shares the artists’ personal thoughts about the creation and inspiration that imbues their work.
JoAnn Locktov has been an advisory board member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists since it was founded in 1999. She also contributes articles to the quarterly newsletter, Groutline. She lives in Mill Valley, CA.
