I was an artist from early childhood. I painted and drew, expanded to etching, other forms of printmaking, then I discovered mosaics. I fell in love with the process; each piece, whether it's broken china, ceramic tile, mirrors, or jewels, brings it own language to the piece. I love combining natural stone with handmade tiles, pieces of tesserae, whatever falls into the picture. Its also enriched my printmaking. After I print the etching, I add color and texture, making each version of the same basic image unique.
