artist bio

I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and am by profession a Land Surveyor. I began drawing and painting in childhood. Later, college and work led me in different directions. About 6 years ago I found myself undertaking a few large mosaic sculpture projects, which took several years to complete. I used mostly stained glass and recycled ceramics, as well as commercial tiles on concrete and metal structures to create the first mosaic sculptures. I wanted more flexibility in tile shape, size and color, so I started making my own, and in the process, began learning about clay. The exploration of ceramics led to another flood of ideas, inspiration and experimentation. I explored slip casting, paper clay, textures, glazes as they apply to both functional and sculptural pieces. I'm always exploring new ideas, methods and materials--ideas come to me as I work.
I also enjoy dancing, hiking, biking, camping, the outdoors...

artist statement

My main passion is mosaic sculpture, but I also dabble in ceramics, both functional and sculptural, as well as painting (mostly in watercolor and some oil painting).
