Bio

Born in Ellicott City, MD. I ventured west to Olympia, WA in 1978 to attend The Evergreen State College. I moved to Seattle in 1980 where I studied Fine Art and Design at The Cornish Institute.

 

   I am a mixed-media artist working in two formats: mosaic and assemblage. I produce abstracts and designs. My mosaic work is generally made with hand-cut china tiles (from dinner plates) and may include found objects such as metal washers and bottle caps, jewelry purchased at thrift stores. The inclusion of discarded items with an unknown history intrigues me. Regeneration and transformation are themes in my work. The mosaic process is a bridge back to my childhood days of putting puzzles together. Assemblages utilize remnants of old textbook covers. I see my work as somewhat androgynous, combining both feminine and masculine elements.
