The art of mosaic is created by combining small pieces of “tesserae” to form a larger image. I use this ancient medium to capture 21st century reflections of ourselves. Using 3/8” micro mosaic tile, marble and/or glass, these portraits express the relationship between people and their surroundings. Details that would otherwise go unnoticed are highlighted, yet the feeling of anonymity creates a sense of voyeurism for the viewer. My work has often been derived from photographs, capturing moments and bits and pieces of individual narratives.

The newest evolution of my work is shifting toward the sculptural, both real and organic, an interesting extraction from materials that are solid and impervious. They, too, have quirky elements which lend context and personality, conveying a story. Mosaic, as I see it, speaks a language of contemporary inspiration infused with tradition.
