I have been long-inspired by European fold art traditions, historical decorative art and by my travels visiting my relatives abroad.
I concluded a career in advertising to pursue the fine art of ceramics and mosaics. My colorful mosaic work has a hand crafted quality and the intricate pattering is featured on garden benches, fountains, planters and accessories for use indoors and out.
My particular style of construction first requires me to shape, glaze and fire hundreds of uniquely individual clay pieces for a project. The finished mosaic pieces are then selected and adhered with thin-set mortar to substructures like clay planters or cement armatures. Finally grout is applied to secure every tile to insuring lasting use and beauty.
