Gender FEMALE

Occupation mixed media mosaic artist
Location Boulder, Colorado, United States
Introduction As an artist and passionate collector, I adore shopping at flea markets and antique malls. It is in that search for the perfect object that my mosaic inspiration begins. When I discover a discarded treasure that I can re-work into something beautiful, my spirit soars. My palette is antique china, stained glass, icon, tiles, and gem stones. Being raised on a Midwestern farm, I cherish the many hours I spent working in the tool shed. When I combine my wood- working skills with a layering technique inspired by the Tramp Artists, a unique style is born. My years as a New York City costume designer taught me how to use colors, patterns and textures to tell compelling stories that evoke different times and places throughout history. I work with images, metaphors, and other forms of symbolic language from diverse world cultures to create sacred spaces. My true creative desire is to inspire through the unique telling of spiritual stories.
