Out of a love of collecting vintage china, my obsession for creating mosaics began.
Creating mosaics began for me about 10 years ago, after reading a craft book about making crazy mosaics. One evening, I was walking my dog, when I spotted a wooden framed mirror which a neighbor had put out on a curb with their trash cans. That mirror became my first mosaic project.
After that project, everything I saw seemed to have the potential as a base for a mosaic. It took several years for my mosaics to evolve. I am often guided by an object that I want to incorporate into the mosaic, such as vintage bottles, or by the patterns or colors in a particular piece of china. I am also inspired by the beautiful scenery that surrounds me daily.
When I am not making mosaics, I am going to yard sales, junk shops, and flea markets searching for the bits and pieces to be used in my mosaics. I have a special fondness for vintage keys, vintage china with floral patterns, old medicine bottles, and vintage books.
When I am not making mosaics, I am working full-time as a nurse, and dreaming about my next mosaic project.
