About the Artist
I create vivid, textural mosaics with stained glass, stone and my favorite material: the original mosaic glass of Italy known as smalti. This intensely colored material is hand-cut with the traditional tools of hammer and hardie, then placed directly onto the panel with no grout, for a dimensional effect.
My work is inspired by the natural world of coastal Oregon, where I live and work. Rather than dramatic seascapes, I prefer looking closely at overlooked landscapes and quiet botanical vignettes. My hope is to reconnect the viewer with nature: its lessons, inspiration and consolations.
You can see my work in person at Volta Glass Gallery in the Taft District of Lincoln City, Oregon. Visitors are welcome (by appointment) to view available works and process in my studio. Please contact me using the form below with questions or custom artwork requests.
