EVERYTHING IS SPECIAL

MY BACKGROUND

For the last 30 years I have been working with clay and making handmade painted ceramic tile which can be seen in commercial and residential sites all over the world.  Now I am following my love of photography and science fiction along with my collection of vintage and antique findings to create unique, one of a kind mixed media wall pieces.  I often can't resist commenting on how science fiction relates to the state of the world today.

MY MEDIUM

 Vintage postcards, old prints, and my photographs are embellished with antique and vintage beads, buttons, gems, embroidery, jewelry and other textiles from around the world.  They are painted, glittered and sealed.

MY INSPIRATION

I am doing what I love.  Taking a precious finding and showing it to the viewer so they can appreciate it in a new light.  Seeing something that might look ordinary and showing how beautiful it can be.
