All original mosaic artwork that covers the Tile House

was completed by ceramic artist Beverley Magennis.

She began in 1984 with a mosaic border around the doorway,

eleven years later the house was covered inside and out.

Most of the tile was donated from tile shops, friends, nieghbors,

and strangers who left buckets of scrap tile in the driveway.


The Tile House is currently home and studio of Beverley's daughter

Erin and her husband Kyle and for the past 10 years Bev has been

writing a series of mysteries novels called the Alibi Creek Tales.

Other mosaic artwork completed by Beverley

are her Garden Ladies.

They have a standing height of about 6' tall.

The torsos are hand made from porcelain clay,

the hollow concrete bases are created from a mold,

and beautifully decorated with mosaic patterns.
