Creating art has always been a part of my life. It's something that I have a need to do, a necessity for my well being. My mosaic journey began in 1992. Four years earlier I had become a self-taught stained glass artist. This was a craft I learned by studying library books and asking questions at the closest glass store which was an hour away from my home. I had accumulated a lot of scrap glass over those four years. I knew I had found my niche when I made my first mosaic from this assortment of leftovers. Although mosaic possibilities are endless, bold color combinations and eye catching designs have become my signature style.
