About

I have been a mosaic artist based out of Dayton for 20 years. I began my great love affair with the art form at age 16 in a high school art class. It is in the cutting, breaking and reassembling of one of the most beautiful materials, stained glass, that I am captivated by excitement. In the evolution of the piece as literally thousands of tesserae come together to form an image, lies the adventure. 

 

community work

Fresh out of college I discovered the true power of collaborative creation and it changed my life.

Art has the power to transcend the social barriers of division. Ethnicity, sex, religion, age, ability, prosperity, poverty, politics, education, health and addiction... they are all cast aside when we come together to create. And in doing so, we lift each other up in the spirit of love and community, bettering ourselves, each other and US. Hate and indifference are defeated when we do it together!
