I am a onetime Costume Designer for the Entertainment Industry, where I worked on Film and Television projects and in the mid 80’s got in the exciting new arena of music videos. I was extremely successful with these and worked on over 300 of them with artists including Sting, The Cars. The Eurythmics. Janet Jackson , Cheryl Crow and many, many more.
In 1991 I discovered that I had a talent as a mosaic artist and began doing large installations, such as fireplaces, floors and pools, in the homes of contacts that I had made in the film biz. In 1998 I finally decided to focus all my attention on my design work and left Costumes behind for good.
I left Los Angeles in 2009 and moved to a mountain top in Southern Oregon where I have my studio in an old barn and am currently creating a line of hand painted home decorating products. So far I am producing Poufs and Rugs/wall hangings and plan to start developing window treatments , cushions and other items as well. I am also currently working on a series of mosaic pieces that I am calling “Stargates” . These are framed pieces, meant to be hung in a window, that incorporate plexiglass, precious and semi- precious stones, crystals, glass and etched in words.
My intention as an artist and as a human being is have every thing that I create have a deeper meaning and effect than just what is on the surface. My goal is simply to make the world a more beautiful place.
