“I feel compelled to create. To not bring a vision to fruition is as foreign to me as the notion of a lioness not protecting her cub. Creating has never felt like a choice for me, but a way of life.

I am a mosaic artist. Though I have tried others, no medium has captured me like tesserae. In my work I use ceramic, porcelain and glass tile, tempered and stained glass, marble, smalti, and assorted other "finds".

It is unusual for me to create a piece by sketching it all out, or having a firm plan. Rather, I let the work take me where it will, at times with a vague idea of my goal for a piece, at times with none.

My art is my life, for it encompasses family, friends, and God. My creativity is a part of me, and is not something I put on the shelf at the end of the workday. I learn and I grow as a person from every piece of art that I create. To have such a gift is no small thing. I am the luckiest woman in the world.”
