artist statement

Formerly a painter, in love with texture, I began adding objects to my canvases to build interest, so it was a natural transition for me to move into multi media with a strong emphasis on mosaic, needing a variety of materials to convey my thoughts.
I like working in a semi-abstract manner, giving myself and the viewer the familiar and unfamiliar to contemplate.
My work is a spontaneous journey, never pre-conceiving the outcome, working in the moment, exploring with metal, ceramics, rocks, shells, smalti, glass, wood, figurines, toys, and found objects. I love finding junk and recycling it into something new, so I am constantly hunting for items to spark my creative process.
My approach to mosaics is just like painting for me, I work fast and am engrossed by all the colors, textures and shapes that build complexity to my work.
