With over 28 years experience, be assured that our team is knowledgeable of materials, both structurally and artistically and has expertise in developing projects that are site specific and conceptually appropriate. I am open to engagement with community groups in developing conceptual goals.
Working with firms and collaborating with a diverse population of clients and designers over the years, has broadened my view of art in general, allowing me to grow immensely in my own artistic discipline. It became apparent at an early stage in my career that incorporating light as a component in my works brought life and dimension to what began as a complex, yet 2D piece. Experimenting with light also allows me to experiment with shadows; especially those of nearby structures. With technology progressing at such a rapid rate, I am now able to use more environmentally friendly LED lighting, creating a much more vivid illumination that saves my clients money in the long run regarding power consumption, and promotes an ecologically sustainable material.

Incredible process of laying out over 75,000 hand cut pieces of glass in 4 different panels. Throughout the entire process he was in constant contact with the team to discuss the piece, send updated imagery, and determine logistics such as installation, weight, lighting, time lines. His end result is an incredible testament to his attention to detail, craftsmanship, and fine eye for beauty.

Jonathan was down to earth, open and honest about his services and highly responsive to our vision. He worked closely with our engineers and construction crews to create “The Electric Waterfall,” a beautiful work of art that flows down the entire face of the building. Jonathan’s creativity and approach to the project made working with him easy and seamless which is why I recommend his work and services to anyone wanting large scale indoor or outdoor art work.

In the early 1990s, we were introduced to Jonathan Brown, a 22-year-old Houston artist working primarily in mosaic. Having produced several living room-sized works of wall art and hand-crafted, gorgeous mosaic table-top inlays, Jonathan went on to create unique custom lighting fixtures for high- end Houston area clubs and restaurants. He also feature created pieces for mansions, schools, and churches. His studio in the loft district attracted a lot of attention from local designers and media alike as he was in the process of glassing the interior of a swimming pool in the West University neighborhood.
What impressed us with Jonathan was his never-ending creative ideas and his meticulous attention to detail. His mosaic works are quite distinct from others we have seen. His use of hand-mixed, custom- colored grouts to complement the hues of ceramic and stained-glass tiles allows him to create a rich, unique tapestry with each work of art.
We gave Jonathan a larger platform for his artwork, commissioning him for several area hospitals seeking signature mural pieces for their lobbies. Within ten years of working with Jonathan, he proved to be one of our most popular and highly rated artists. A dozen large- scale hospital installations and four states later, Jonathan has proven himself to be one of the top mosaic artists in the South and is gaining a reputation on the national stage.
He always proves to be responsive, understands the clients’ needs, and produces on time and under budget. We continue to consult with Jonathan twenty-three years later and whenever appropriate, seek to commission him for work that is recognized for its excellence and beauty.
We give Jonathan our unqualified recommendation
