Thank you for stopping by my mosaic shop!

I cannot remember a time when I have not been creating art in some form or another. My earliest childhood memories consist of drawing, painting, and craft projects. Growing up, my artistic talents were always encouraged, but feeling the need to be a little more practical I got a design degree. It was a fun ride being a designer for 10 years, but I had to listen to my heart and become a full time mural and mosaic artist!

Although murals have made up the majority of my business, my true passion lies with mosaics. In my many travels abroad I have always been immediately drawn to mosaics, whether it’s Gaudi in Barcelona, the churches in Ravenna, or the ruins in Pompeii. It’s hard to explain how moving mosaics are to me - it goes to the very core of my being. I love to see how different artists express their art with the melding of the vast variety and diversity of tesserae, combining materials of various colors and textures. I get constant inspiration from seeing other’s expressions of art. My favorite pieces are the ones with varying heights and textures. I am a very tactile person and I want other people to be drawn to my pieces of art and be compelled to touch them and look from various angles to see how the light reflects off of the tiny surfaces, to get lost in the beauty of the intricacy.

My pieces are photographed from different angles to to ephasize this and give you an idea of the varying heights and textures and to see how the light bounces off the different surfaces.

I hope you enjoy browsing through my art and I hope something catches your whimsy, nothing pleases me more than for my pieces to have a good home!
