"Art has always been an outlet for me, a form of meditation and a place of peace and joy. I have gravitated to painting for most of my life, I love the color and texture of painting. Over the last five years I have found myself with a new love. I have become enthralled with mosaic art, I love cutting the pieces in just the right size and shape out of stone, glass and other materials. Each piece of tesserae is like a piece of my life, sometimes they don’t make sense on their own, but once you start looking at the pieces together it creates a full picture. Many of my early pieces are inspired by nature, as I continue to grow as an individual and an Artist, I am seeing a shift to pieces that express my inner spirituality. I started out teaching myself and I was happy to find the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) and the New England Mosaic Society (NEMS). Both are great organizations with a Mission to promote contemporary mosaic art while preserving traditional techniques. I have been able to study with some very talented artists to improve my own skills in this art form. As with most things, there is always more to learn."
