Artist Statement
As an artist, I try to link my art to my faith – expressing awe at creation and the Creator. As a mosaicist, I find working with glass to be transforming. In our “throw-away” culture, I am often inspired to reinvent glass scraps or found objects into sacred art. It is important to me that nothing be wasted - finding beauty in what was once broken.

My mosaics range from abstract sculpture and landscapes to liturgical wall hangings and commissioned works.

Additional information

Initially studying fine arts led to my degree in Commercial Art and career in broadcast design. For 25 years, I worked in television as art director, animator, and graphic designer winning numerous honors for design, including seven Emmy Awards.
Since 2003, my mosaics have been exhibited across the U.S. and in Canada. I teach mosaic and mixed workshops and lead retreats, both in-person and virtually as well. A professional member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists, I am also founding member and Past-President of Colorado Mosaic Artists.
