Contemporary Mosaic Art

Texture is the key element of my work.  I am fascinated by textures and patterns and how the arrangement of seemingly unrelated materials of varying color, size, shape and feel can come together to form a cohesive whole.

I create multi-textured, one-of-a-kind decorative mosaics that incorporate not only glass tile, but also jewelry, stained glass, pottery, beads, millifiori and stones to create variations in height, shape and finish that draw the eye and encourage touch. I use multiple variations of each color to create a rich color palette. The tight proximity of tiles and objects keeps the viewer’s interest on the mosaic rather than the grout.  The final pieces, made of disparate materials, come together to create an artistic statement that is both visually attractive and tactile.
