I am a self taught artist and have been drawing, painting and creating forever. After several careers which were not art related, I found myself working in an independent art supply store. It was the proverbial “candy store” for me. Inspiration was unavoidable being exposed to the local art community and their work. Having all the newest products and supplies at hand spurred me to delve into different mediums until I discovered mosaic. I love the idea of creating art out of various materials, making it all come together from bits and pieces. Each piece is a new challenge. For the past seven years, I have been learning, creating, selling and exhibiting my work in Northeast Florida. Each piece is original and takes many hours to complete. My designs are rooted in what I see around me. The ocean, marshes, lakes and backyard wildlife afford me endless subjects! Along with creating my own ideas, I am happy to accept commissions.
