  • About Me: My mother was a bit confused, when at the age of seven I glued beans, peas and any legumes I could reach, onto a tabletop in a swirling pattern. That was my first, and last, mosaic until I was forty-six. In 2003 I was caring for my father who was dying from cancer. He needed something to do and we both needed a happy, colorful, place to go at the end of the day. We immersed ourselves in the art of mosaics and when he passed, I didn’t stop.

    Most of my pieces are 3D. Conquering the complexities of a mosaic sculpture satisfies my need to build structure while the effect of the repetitive work is meditative and soothing. With an odd desire to put things in order, I assemble materials that run the gamut of trash to gold – always keeping the primary ingredient glass (stained, smalti, frit, and rods).

    Experience and instinct guide my hands while my designs are born from a joyful heart and a love of bright colors. I strive to offer mosaics that are uplifting and intriguing, sharing what lives in my imagination.
