I am a stained glass, mosaic artist. Stained glass and mosaics are ancient crafts that are contemporary and colorful art forms. In my Chicago studio, I create stained glass mosaics that are unique, functional and decorative. No two mosaics are the same. As part of my work, I incorporate older objects into my mosaics such as vintage silver plated trays, used brass plates or porcelain dinner ware. I search for trays or plates that have character and patina. They frame the art, add a sculptural element and become an essential part of the mosaic. The mosaics are fine art, decorative and functional. They can hang on a wall like a painting, be a table centerpiece or unique tray. Whether it is a window, a tray or a plate, a stained glass mosaic can change the look of a room, improve a view, enhance a table or maybe spark a conversation.
