Join me as I embark on a journey to explore my dream: blogging about my passions of art, design, and culture. For I believe, those 3 aspects connects us in ways we may not acknowledge or think about. From design tips to coverage of art shows to concerts to festivals to performing arts, this blog will serve as a destination for all things art, design, culture.
Here’s my charge to my readers: Comment and leave your feedback on posts. Send me art, design, culture info that would be cool to feature on my blog. Share this blog with your friends. Subscribe to the blog. Connect with the Cultured Mosaic’s social media channels. And last but not least, enjoy reading the blog. I promise to make it fun and worthwhile.
