I created the Pocket Art series as a smaller offering that still provides the full tactile experience of my larger pieces yet they fit on a table or a shelf within your favourite space. These pieces have reflective and dimensional surfaces of mosaic that resonates deeply for me.
The dialogue between contemplation and expression is a rewarding and fascinating experience. My creative inspiration comes from mother nature. Trees, mountains, oceans, topography and geological formations, flora and fauna. I nurture the process and development of ideas to the emotional response I get from the natural tessera.
I strive for conceptual meaning in my work. My process is to work spontaneously and expressively using various textures and shape of tessera to create visual abstract representation of landform. I start with an interesting piece that attracts me which serves as a key element that will further the development of the piece. As the vital lines develop the composition, details are added through an endless succession of artistic decisions.
