I am a mosaic artist working primarily with glass. The elements of nature, its perfections as well as its imperfections, became fundamental to my art pieces, relating a sense of place and connection. I have produced over 400 art works for private collections and businesses. My love affair with mosaics continues as I create one-of-a-kind mirrors, murals, sculptures and a variety of other pieces, with selection based on color, pattern and texture of glass. I have participated in numerous art shows throughout the region. Current art pieces can be found here at Semva and at Callaway Gallery. I have recently branched out to create unique bracelets and notecards featuring nature photography.
I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, but have lived in Rochester since 1981. I became interested in art while teaching science in Rochester. Since retiring from teaching in 2002, I have devoted myself full time to my art. I have three children and one grandchild.
