I am an artist and educator, based in Ashland, Oregon, USA. With stained glass pieces chaotically arranged, I produce mosaic wall-hangings of forested landscapes of Western USA. My techniques were developed in isolation, and biology sculpted my visual vocabulary. I have earned major awards in international competitions in mosaics, glass or all-media. I present at mosaic conferences and offer workshops at home and overseas. In USA my mosaics have been featured in popular press, coffee-table books, trade journals, art magazines and advertisements for art organizations and competitions.
