Bright colors, interesting textures, bits and pieces of treasure and endless ways to put these together.
When I took my first mosaic class, I knew immediately yhat I was hooked. I am excited to assemble beautiful glass tiles and beads in order to create an image or express an idea. I also love hunting for found and discarded objects, such as broken dishes, old mirrors, vintage buttons and jewelry, and rusty hardware that I can include as part of a mosaic piece. It's fun now when my friends and family bring me treasures that they are no longer using. These found objects often inspire my next piece of art.
I feel especially connected to themes that remind me of living in a beautiful small town in the Northwest - cheerful houses, stately trees, singing birds and colorful fish. I enjoy creating mirrors, frames, coasters wall art and "not-too-serious" little animal ornaments.
