“I am a Canadian artist who creates original mosaic art using traditional and contemporary techniques. Originally studied art, specializing in painting and textiles, I became a glass artist in 1999. Once introduced to mosaics in 2004 I immediately loved the combination of colour, texture and freedom this medium allowed. In 2006 I was trained by Luciana Notturni at the Mosaic Art School in Ravenna, and I have continued to learn modern techniques by studying with many mosaic artists in North America.
Most of my mosaic training has taught me to plan very diligently, but as my experience grows, I find that I prefer to plan a small portion of what I will create and then put my materials around me and work intuitively and spontaneously. I work with a wide range of styles and subjects, but I often specialize in portraits. I am currently enjoying exploring more abstract work. My mosaic art has been shown in juried art shows in Canada and the USA.”
