Inspiration for my mosaics is drawn from the unrefined beauty of the natural environment. I am captivated by its complexity of form, texture, colour, light, and the impression it gives of perfect simplicity.
Each work is as individual as the image that inspired it.
Rarely without a camera, I use photos taken while hiking, tide pooling or otherwise engaging with flora and fauna as a spark for a new pieceâ€”theyâ€™re not literal guides.
From there I build organically. Various forms of glass, as well as minerals; both polished and unpolished, are among my favorite materials. Using and shaping the geometry of hard-edged materials, I love the challenge of portraying the texture and flow of living forms.
