a beautiful garden at the beginning of creation—alive and
growing with everything we need… paradise!
Working with glass is transforming. The pieces are broken,
fit together, and then made whole again with
glue or grout — sometimes in surprising ways. As an artist, I
try to link my art to my faith – expressing awe at creation
and the Creator — whether abstract landscape, sculpture, or
liturgical commissions. As a mosaicist, I treasure glass
scraps or discarded items from our “throw-away” culture. It is
important to me that nothing is wasted, that beauty is found
in what was once broken.
