Self-taught art has been a major part of my life since childhood. My journey into mosaics began just over 16 years ago. I incorporate handmade pieces and all types of glass, ceramic, beads, wood, metal, and any other material that calls me. Each work showcases my attention to details in the design elements, color choices and selection of materials. I never pass on an opportunity to take workshops in the US or all over the world. My need to search for more found objects and to exchange ideas with fellow artists, only adds fuel to my never-ending craving to learn, improve and create. I’m on the Board of Directors for SAMA and have been juried into Mosaic Arts International four times. I am also a member of Mosaic Arts of Michigan (MAM). I have a video of my “Orbs on Parade”, available through Mosaic Arts Online. Most of my new body of art is meant to emphasize the unconventional method in which I produce my pieces, using more repurposed materials, and trying to communicate a deeper more significant meaning in my work.
