You won’t find the home of mosaic artist Craigie Succop tucked among the colorful houses on the streets of St. Michaels, Md.

In fact, even though visitors are welcome to her Turtle Cove Studios and Gallery, you may have to call for directions. Craigie lives off of a winding two-lane highway a few miles beyond the downtown proper, on a gravel lane lined with evergreens. Veer left at the Y in the road, and watch the property unfold.

Glittering outdoor mosaic sculptures greet you as you approach the barn. Larger-than-life salamanders crawl up its walls, and two faces stare at one another from the middle of a rock pile in a pond facing the river. A large blue bar on the patio—another one of Craigie’s creations—sits just outside the spacious window-lined living room, allowing a peek at the space inside.
