Putting an idea down on paper and have it come alive through the
medium of mosaic is my passion. I’ve always been attracted to
“shiny materials” such as tile and glass. Back in the 80’s my
medium of choice was copper enamel, shiny glass fused onto
copper. It is these materials; glass, tile and a few odd found
objects, such as marbles, jewelry, dishes, coins and stones that I
use in my mosaics to help tell a story…evoke an
emotion…capture your imagination and make you smile. Each
piece takes on a life and soul of its own.
Art has always been a huge part of my life, I can’t remember a
time when I wasn’t using my imagination and creating something.
I have dabbled in many mediums over the years which led me to
awe-ha moment when I decided to teach art in the public schools.
After 20+years of teaching high school art, I am excited to start
studio classes and workshops for adults.
My goal is to provide an art program that will allow adults to have
fun, be creative and at the same time make something beautiful. I
have always loved the socialization of having a group of friends
over to create art, have a meal, and laugh. That is how I want my
classes to be, enjoyable while still providing a challenge. I have
found that mosaic combines all my artistic experiences and allows
me to paint with shape and color. I am excited to share this
exciting medium and more at my home studio.
