Stained Glass Mosaics and Mixed Media Art

My art is heavily influenced by the Vienna Secessionists, especially Gustav Klimt. The fluidity of Art Nouveau also inspires me, as do the vibrant and warm colors of the 1920's Art Deco period.  In 1982, I distinctly remember Duran Duran's Rio album cover by Patrick Nagel.  I loved his stylized representation of the female form.  All of these elements of my experience have shaped my treatment of materials and design.   

Unlike Klimt and Nagel and many other male artists, my perspective of women is different. As a woman, my work is about expressing the experience of womanhood from the inside - not just an appreciation of form.    

My art is an honest look at the fragile, powerful, quiet and outspoken moments that define our experience at every stage. My work is a visual journal of my personal growth and the emotions, memories and lessons that have shaped me. 

Thank you for visiting.
