About Me

 

 

I

I have a passion for mosaic and made it my profession for over 10 years.  I have been an artist and designer all my life, though creating outdoor spaces is my true passion.  I find tremendous satisfaction in making something whole from fragments of common everyday items.  I work in the direct method: tessarae are adhered directly to the base, and the surface is then grouted.  I teach classes and workshop at my home studio and at local adult schools, museum, libraries, churches, and private gatherings.
