“I have spent my life creating art and surrounding myself with imagery rich in personal meaning, color and pattern. I have used paint, paper, recycled fabric, metal, wood, etc. Now my focus is on the ancient art of mosaics. I bring to mosaics, as I do all my work, the appreciation and study of traditional crafts such as paper cutting, needle work, and the many different temporary forms of architectural and personal ornamentation. "I use color, richness of pattern and complexity to create an opportunity for discovery while incorporating the familiar.”
