Rahnee Gladwin is an interior designer, allied member of the American Institute of Architects and member of the Tile Heritage Foundation. Since 1997, she has also worked with stone, glass, metal and ceramics, specializing in custom mosaic design and assembly, through her company, R. Gladwin i Design Tile.
Recently, she was approached by a local architect, Betty Nichols, whose client was seeking a shore-themed mural for her penthouse in Galveston, TX. “She wanted to feature indigenous shore birds and incorporate local seashells that she collected of the Galveston, TX area beaches into a mosaic, bringing the outside into the penthouse suite on the 28th floor,” said Gladwin. “The murals tell the story of the beach life, reflecting it back to the 28th floor through the floor-to-ceiling windows, showing a panoramic view of the Gulf Coast.”
