About Me

I am a mosaic artist and educator, who is based in Ashland, Oregon, USA. I produce glass mosaic wall hangings that depict intimate botanical scenes or native landscapes and wildflowers of the western US, often with elements of fire or water.


I have been awarded top accolades in international competitions in mosaics, glass, and all-media competitions. I have had the honor to exhibit and speak at mosaic conferences in Europe, Australia, and USA. My mosaics have been featured in popular press and coffee-table books, trade journals, art magazines and advertisements for art competitions and organizations.


I served as artist-in-residence at Crater Lake National Park, Uroboros Glass, and Olive Stack's Fine Art Gallery. I teach workshops on my unusual techniques, and in that space I reveal my approach to depicting realism through chaos.
