About

Video summary: The shimmer of glass in mosaics is unique giving dimension not found in flat painted objects.

Bringing a touch of shimmer to your world. Have a passion for pattern, love creating mosaic art for Home + Garden

Creating mosaic art for gifts and home decor, my signature mosaic wall crosses, custom wall letters, photo frames, mosaic planters and custom wall art have become the place for me to express my love of pattern and texture in a time honored medium.

My shop has been evolving ever since I cut my first piece of glass...I began creating my Keepsake Art Crosses after having made my first one for a dear friend, whose husband passed away...she was so touched and then had others begin to ask me to make them one as well... each day I find new inspiration in functional objects I can decorate to personalize your home or garden.

A Special Story
**********************************************
In a way I cannot describe except by believing there is a purpose to everything, a beautiful Angel Son's story came to my attention. His name is Liam. Liam's mom worked with my sister and though I had never met neither Liam nor his family, there was a connection when I heard his story. Liam passed away from Sudden Cardic Arrest at age 16. His mom wanted to buy one of my crosses, since it reminded her of Liam's bright sapphire blue eyes.

When I saw the order, I couldn't bring myself to keep the money, so I asked her if there was a charity I could donate the money from the purchase in Liam's honor. She told me about the fund, The Liam K. Regensburg Memorial Fund, as well as Parent Heart Watch," a national network of parents, families and partners dedicated to reducing Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in youth." You can see a photo of Liam at parentheartwatch.org and learn about their “Legacy of the Lost”

Liam was taken much too soon, but his memory lives on through his dreams, which was to give children, otherwise unable, the opportunity to attend Summer Boy Scout Camp.

My heart went out to families that have had to deal with the loss of their child. I decided to donate 10% of the gross sales of all my Keepsake Art Crosses from then on to the Liam K. Regensburg Memorial Fund. The LKR Fund is located in Oakdale, NY, which is nearby.

The LKR Fund also sponsors periodically free EKG (electrocardiogram) screenings for youth at local middle schools, highlighting the importance early detection. "Beats for Liam" check it out on FB to prevent possible teen deaths from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

***************************************************

My Mosaic Story began a number of years ago as I looked for a medium that I could call my own... I started thinking about what I most liked and I kept coming back to mosaics....After living in Rome for almost a decade, I would find myself surrounded by mosaics, which were an unspoken part of the city. People would pass by and even walk on beautiful examples of cut stone walkways and patterned walls, extraordinary works of art, taking them for granted and not fully appreciating the artisanal effect this art form had on the city.

My love of mosaics was first inspired by my Sicilian roots as I was taken by my parents to ancient sites in Sicily, such as Monreale in Palermo, where the walls and floors were covered with thousands of exquisite tiny pieces of smalti glass as well as in Piazza Amerina, in the center of Sicily, where some of the best preserved mosaic floors can be found in the Villa Romana del Casale.

Drawn to forms inspired by nature, mosaic allows me a forum to explore works that are compositions in contrast. The contrast between values of light and dark, size, and textures of materials such as stone and glass are combined into motifs that explore observations found in natural patterns.

Each stone is in itself a unique element and yet together they utilize repetition and pattern to form an integrated whole.

Function and decoration become incorporated into a singular work in mosaics. This method of creating with small pieces of material has a long history and tradition, yet I find inspiration in the contemporary exploration of the form, focusing on texture, shape, size and color. The natural elements of stone, glass, cement and grout are enhanced by cut, placement and juxtaposition within a design. There is a luminous quality in the tesserae that changes in relation to your position to the work. Forming mosaics is a process that takes patience and precision, yet the result can be extremely fluid and organic.

**********************************************

Thanks for stopping by my shop -I love working with my hands - hope you find as much enjoyment in my mosaics as I have had in creating them.
