Artist Statement

I love creating timeless mosaics and glass-on-glass installations using tiles or stained glass that are shaped, fired, and carved. Public installations with glass/clay can take shape as murals, sculptural installations, or functional seating areas. I make sure that the materials used last a lifetime with only a wash of water-based sealant yearly to protect the grout from freeze thaw cycles. Think Pompeii abstracted, with the vivid colors of today, durable, timeless, and joyful. I also I’m excited about my kinetic hanging or free standing sculptural installations that move with the wind or ambient air currents of people moving about the building or using lighted elements that add to the nighttime palette.

I embrace commissioned work, combining different views and engaging communities. In addition to working as a public artist I have a background in working as a commercial exhibit designer, theatrical set designer, advertising pro and scenic artist. I have designed and produced public art on schedule to exacting standards. I work well with community members and understand budgets, blueprints and most importantly listen. Let’s have fun working together to create the best public artwork for your community.
