I grew up in rural South Eastern Ohio in the 1970's. Art and nature have always been a part of my life. I love to incorporate nature in my art work. The piece, Nautical Reflections combines elements of the sea with stained glass and ceramics in a pleasing pique assiette arrangement. It has a shabby chic, cottage style impression.
In addition to mosaics, I have painted using watercolors, oils, and acrylics. I have also worked with pastels.
The greatest influence on my creativity has been my mother, Sharon, an artist who derived her style from elements of nature that surrounded her life.
I currently live in Western Pennsylvania with my husband and 4 cats. I am affiliated with the Norwin Art League. I have entered and won awards in the league's annual Art Exhibit held each fall.
