Welcome! I've been so busy creating pieces and being a teaching artist that I've gotten behind in updating my website. I've also started doing stained glass work in addition to mosaics, so my entire site will be revised this year. Please check out my Instagram page for my newest work.
WHAT'S UP: I'm so excited to be part of the Pittsburgh Glass Center teaching team as of Fall 2021. It's been a great experience! I'm also continuing to teach mosaics at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and Media and will be conducting a mosaic stepping stone workshop at Artsmiths of Pittsburgh in May 2022.
A little about me: I'm a mosaic artist residing in my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Before returning to Pittsburgh in 2016, I lived for many years in New York City, where I studied Fine Arts at the Parsons School of Design and worked in the publishing industry.
After years of painting, I found fulfillment as an artist doing mosaics. In early 2017, I started devoting my creative time to making mosaic photo frames and mirrors, and eventually began branching out to many other mosaic works. The tactile experience of cutting and setting the pieces and the intellectual challenge of fitting the pieces together provided me the outlet I was longing for, which painting alone never quite satisfied, even as I got more into mixed media. Artists' journeys are seldom straight, but as long as the desire is there, they will lead us to where we should be.
