I have always been a coastal person. Being near the ocean has always felt right for me. I grew up in Maine, lived in Alaska most of my life where we used the boat we built to explore the coast. In 2010 we moved to the Oregon coast.
I saw an amazing mosaic wall mural at the Pratt museum in Homer AK some years ago which sparked the idea to give it a try myself. I have found mosaic to be a very versatile medium allowing an incredible range of possibilities, and a LOT less work than stonework which I did in the past..
I am still experimenting. I have used various glass wall tiles, ceramic wall tiles, and a variety of mosaic tiles such as Prism, aura metallic, smalti, sigris iridium, and mosaic marbles. My first showing was on a 1st Friday in May 2010 at the Fireweed Gallery in Homer AK . Currently I am a member of Pacific Artists Alliance in Lincoln City OR where my works are on display.
