Jeannie Clinkenbeard – Co President
Full time Corporate Leadership Trainer and part time artist. Jeannie finally found a way to feed her addiction to color – creating Mosaics. In 2012 She and her sister founded GOLD MOTH MOSAICS, and work together in Jeannie’s basement studio to turn old skies and snowboards into art. Being in Colorado there is no shortage of these forms. They’ve recently branched into mosaicing their 3rd “S”- Skulls.
Jeannie and Carol sell their art through interior designers and at art shows in Aspen, Vail, Beaver Creek, and Denver. They currently exhibit at a gallery in Littleton CO: OUTNUMBERED
Jeannie has been inspired by taking workshops by some of the masters: Sonia King, Kelly Knickerbocker, Diane Sonnenberg and attending SAMA in San Diego.
2018 is Jeannie’s first year on the board of CMA, and looks forward to keeping this eclectic, crazy talented, never dull group moving forward!

Renewed life is breathed into old, tired cast-offs by her contemporary approach to the ancient art of mosaics.
Jane’s award winning reclaimed mosaic work has been exhibited across the front range of Colorado. She has donated art to Guitar Town for VH1’s Music Cares, One Lafayette, BMoCA Charity, Boulder Attention Homes, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and Frequent Flyers Productions. Jane was commissioned by the city of Lakewood to create a mosaic park bench for last summer’s Beautiful Bench project and recently completed a powder room back splash commission for a Boulder home.

Becki Whittington-Vice President
Becki is a mosaic/mixed media artist with a background in instructional design and school counseling. After being introduced to mosaics as a 7th grader at Long Lots Jr. High School, Westport, CT, she has forayed into the medium with more vigor starting in 2012. She continues her life-long learning by participating in workshops and classes taught by recognized mosaic artists.
Whittington puts the essence of herself into each piece that is one-of-a-kind, whimsical, thoughtful and is inspired by the stories to be told. use She uses unique combinations of shape, texture and color along with a wide variety of materials to create these works of art. The art is created with tile, china, beads, jewelry, scrapbook paper, photographs, stained glass, wire, tempered glass, polymer clay, acrylic paint, and alcohol ink. The interpretation of artwork is always in the eye of the beholder yet many of her pieces invoke reaction by being interactive with a game and/or a phrase.
Her work is on permanent display at The Maine Dowd Eisenhower Library, Broomfield, CO and The Children’s Hospital, Aurora, CO. Private collections include addresses from the United States, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom and Barbados. Whittington participates in shows as part of the Colorado Mosaic Artists, Lakewood Arts Co-op, and Broomfield Art Guild.
Her roots started in the Midwest, were nurtured on the East Coast, and are firmly held in Broomfield, CO where has raised her children. Her studio is also located in Broomfield.
Pam Farris-Media/Public Relations
I’ve been an educator for 23 years in schools ranging from private high school to public elementary to my current position as Art and Technology teacher In Jefferson County. I have also been a School Representative in the Colorado Art Education Association and Chair of Artsource Colorado. As the Chair of Artsource Colorado, I was responsible for all the communications, budgeting, overseeing committees, signing contracts and being the figurehead for the organization.
Three years ago, I decided to practice what I preach and be an artist. I’m always telling my kids to take a chance and make art. After a terrible mosaic workshop, I modified what I learned to create successful mosaics. Mosaic for me is a stress reliever and creative outlet. I also joined a co-op gallery to broaden my artistic experience. The gallery has shown me a different side of the art world where you have to decide what your audience is and what will sell.
The Colorado Mosaic Artists group has been a wealth of information and support. I found a group that gets my mosaic obsession.
Charles Garth- Secretary/Treasurer
Charles Garth Meyers has been interested in, and involved in, art in one form or another for most of his life. He played oboe in high school and acted in community theatrical groups. While attending the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he majored in anthropology and minored in music, he began dancing. Dancing lead him to New York City where he lived for 30 years, minus 3 years in Germany and Switzerland. In New York he became interested in stained glass and fused glass. Mosaics followed.
