I am a self-taught mosaicist and sculptor with a passion for sharing my love of organic patterns and textures found in nature with my viewers. I use organic materials and found objects I collect from my local South Carolina beaches and combine them with glass, hand-dyed fibers, paper, semi-precious stones, and other materials to try to provoke the same kind of wonder that I experience when I’m collecting the objects. My artistic journey began with photography, spending hundreds of hours in the darkroom translating images taken from the world around me into studies of contrast, texture, and tone. Living in and experiencing different cultures and types of art over the ensuing years spurred me to try new forms of art-making, from needlework to collage, and finally to working with glass and form-making. My work continues to evolve asI explore concepts of femininity and the healing power of nature through my art, with the common theme, always, being the mastery of nature.
