Mosaic, one of my favorite artistic expressions, challenges and excites me in both the limitations of, and the variety of, the materials a mosaicist might use. In the creating, I enjoy the push and pull, the back and forth, between the mind's designing and the repetitive physical, almost meditative, movements of the hand's cutting, placing and adhering the tesserae – the small pieces of glass, tile, or stone that make up a mosaic and come together visually to form the larger image.


In my work I'm inspired by color, shapes, textures, the written word, and the beauty of both the natural world and the world of the imagination.

Commissions welcome.
