My art, like a garden is about attending to the senses, creating an emotional response to aesthetic stimulation. In the tradition of mosaics I employ a contemporary twist, incorporating stone, minerals, wood and glass.
The catalyst for the "conversation" of the artwork can be as simple as a stone from a river in Italy or the magic of minerals with their shapes being defined by light's reflection. The work grows organically, solely relying on the relationship between each piece of tesserae.
