Artists Inspiration:

Artist creates sustainable, award winning art mosaics and fine furniture for gallery, architectural, community, business settings and homes. She designs traditional and contemporary styles that beg to be touched and should be to be truly enjoyed. They are built as elegant, beautiful and functional pieces that will last for generations. Born and raised in Missouri, she learned most of her woodworking, glass cutting, mosaic and painting skills from her parents. Her father, a trade craftsman, and her mother, a creator of many types of domestic designs, were very patient with her youthful exuberance of painted murals on bedroom walls and tile projects that left grout tracked through their house. While she always worked with different mediums of art throughout her life, her practical nature got the better of her after she received her BA from the University of Missouri in English and she choose to pursue an education in law. This led her to Los Angeles, California where she earned a Juris Doctorate and Masters in Dispute Resolution from Pepperdine University. Her time in law school would prove pivotal for her and her artistry. Inspired by her beautiful surroundings in California, she immersed herself into mosaics and furniture to balance her studies of law and she soon realized that she enjoyed being an artist much more than being a lawyer. The artist spent time traveling and studying in Europe, admiring the tile work and architectural sights in her travels. After law school she married, moved to Connecticut and took a professional hiatus from both art and law to raise her girls. Now that her children are all of school age she has reemerged in the art and furniture world with a vast new hunger for mosaics, furniture making and color while using found, recycled, green and reclaimed products in each piece. My influences come from all around me, things I see in nature, my travels and experiences and my children. Inspiration also comes from my clients who come to me for commissioned pieces with ideas of their own. I work with them to process the idea of what they want through my own eyes. I enjoy the pieces I make in collaboration with my clients as much as my own pieces because the results are always beautiful and unique.
