My work has always explored relationships in some way while not focusing on any particular times or events, I am more concerned with our timeless conflicts and yearnings.
I use allegories about human nature, at times inspired by myths to tell stories. An example would be the myth of Romulus and Remus—which I have portrayed with a lone crying child being nursed by a wolf, representing both loss and connection. I’m fascinated by co-existing realities, contradictions and the tension they create.
I was a an accomplished and internationally recognized fine-art photographer for many years. I now bring elements of story telling from that photographic work into my mosaics. I incorporate figures from these photographs into my current mixed-media narratives. The beauty and texture of glass have always intrigued me. Using stained-glass, with its' endless shadings and colors have opened up a new world of expression for me. Combining figures from my photographs with the deep colors of glass and other objects brings them to life with new stories to tell.
