I am a professional mosaic artist working in Talent, OR, that accepts private and public commissions. I am a member of SAMA-the Society of American Mosaic Artists and also a member of Clayfolk, the Southern Oregon Potters Association. Although I primarily create mosaic art, I also create works of functional ceramics, stained glass, sculpture, and various other media.
In 2012 I designed and created a handmade ceramic tile mosaic, “Places”, a sidewalk mosaic for the City of Grants Pass, OR for their “History Underfoot” project.
I was the main artist-for-hire on the first public art piece commissioned by the City of Ashland, OR, “Rio Amistad”. This 300 square foot handmade ceramic tile piece was completed in 2005, by Illahe Tileworks. In addition, I was one of three artists from Illahe to create the “Life Cycle of the Salmon” handmade ceramic tile mosaic for the Portland Zoo in 2004.
In 2000 I and a team of two others created mosaics and sculptural elements for a private residence in St. Louis, MO from recycled tile, marble, and plaster. It won “Home of the Year” in St. Louis Magazine in 2000 and was recently featured in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in an article in the home section.
