One of our most dedicated artisans at Piece by Piece is Hilda M. She is a thoughtful, creative and energetic person who is always ready and willing to help others, and eager to expand her own knowledge in mosaic art. Originally from Guatemala, Hilda studied in the National Conservatory of Music, the National School of Dance, and the National School of Theater there. Her rich background in the performing arts has been a great benefit to her as she opens herself to new experiences. She has a delicate and gentle style in mosaic, and not only creates her own artwork but has participated in several large group projects with Piece by Piece.
