Today I am designing, coordinating and installing a growing number of community-based projects. These fun, collaborative art projects attract a wide range of participants who work together to create beautiful large-scale mosaic artwork. This unique community approach results in a sense of ownership and pride as each individualís contributions combine with othersí to blossom into a finished piece of art. My professional experience in marketing, public relations, visual communications, and project management contribute to the success of these community engagements. A mosaic is unique. Itís customizable and highly collaborative, allowing the project to reflect your institutionís values and aesthetic while also engaging the community in ways that many other art mediums simply can not. My mosaic method brings in large numbers of community members to participate in a hands-on process thatís accessible to all ages and skill levels. It generates infectious engagement as the piece evolves. A beautiful piece of art installed in your facility is engaging, but having artwork that your community members and patrons help create goes much further. Collaboration in the creative process brings people together! I also produce and sell my own mosaic pieces. I use vintage window sashes, mosaic right on the glass and then grout them. They are beautiful in front of an window, the garden or on a porch. Finally, I teach many classes, from 5 year-olds to 95 year-olds. Everyone can mosaic and it is a lovely art form to have a beginner find the joy in creating something themselves.
I am a self-taught mosaic artist with a background in graphic arts and advertising, I design and create vintage window sash frame mosaics featuring folk art imagery, as well as large community-based installations. I
