Dreams have inspired my life, choices, and art. My mosaics are a visual exploration of dream images, characters, feelings, and experiences, which is an extension of my dreamwork. I use mosaic and sculpture as a means to reflect a dream experience and give it tactile form. The mosaics frequently begin with an actual image or feeling from deep within a dream. Through the natural progression of the mosaic art-making process, the final imagery unfolds. This technique enables me to manifest and integrate a combination of dream energies, thus awakening their potential power in my life.
I enjoy interpreting and rendering images in a fragmented way, which is very similar to how my own dreams unfold. Creating mosaics satisfies my desire to make things whole, out of many different pieces. The mosaic pieces are constructed from a combination of Italian glass tiles, stained glass, fused glass, Mexican Talavera tiles, hand-crafted glazed pottery pieces, rocks, mirror, and found objects.
