A Santa Monica Based Artist

I grew up around art. My father was a painter who always had a painting on his easel that he was working on in our den.

 

A highlight of my 5 year old self was my father displaying my butterfly painting  in one of his art shows in the park, hiding behind a tree to spy on people looking at my painting, and so elated when they did.

I've come up with a completely unique way of creating mosaics. When making a piece I typically start with a photograph that I've taken. I may add man made elements, symbols, design features. I then choose the colors and off I go.  

 

I use stained glass glass for it's vibrancy, the quality of light and color. I love that the pieces are 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional at the same time. 

 

What I find endlessly fascinating and exciting is to see how an image, be it a photograph or a drawing, is transformed by using glass. That image becomes something completely new and completely different. 

 

I love how small pieces come together to make a whole. I love painting with glass.

And yes I do get cut, kind of a lot...
