As long as I can remember, art has been an important part of my life. As a child, I spent every spare minute drawing or painting. For years, I dabbled in photography, painting, sculpture and a huge variety of crafts and worked as a graphic designer for 18 years. In 1998, I discovered eggshell and mixed media mosaic. Mosaic became my medium of choice. With the use of glass, eggshell, natural stone and slate, I am able to create works with the color and intense drama that I enjoy. I love texture, brilliant colors and creating pieces that will evoke feelings and emotions to the viewer. In 2003, I was the first place winner for the Flax Art & Design Catalog Cover Contest. My eggshell mosaic depicting two dancers was printed for the fall 2003 catalog cover. I participated in Horses, Saratoga Style in 2007, creating a mixed media (including eggshell mosaic) design on a life size fiberglass Thoroughbred Horse. Music in Motion won the Public Choice Award. The MAPEI Corporation invited me to create a mosaic for their promotional exhibit in 2015. My mosaic, Ms. MAPEI, was displayed at the Society of American Mosaic Artists Conference in Philadelphia, PA, March 2016. It is now on display at MAPEIs Corporate Office. In 2016, I created two mosaics, for the Lexington Public Librarys, Lexington, KY, Invitational show, Characters in a Book. I enjoy teaching and have taught workshops on eggshell mosaic at Luna Mosaic Arts, Orlando FL., Maverick Mosaics, Vienna VA, The Mosaic Guys, Phoenix AZ., the Mosaic Society of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA. I live in Upstate New York with my husband and two daughters. I am an active participant in local art shows in Albany, Saratoga and Adirondack Regions. My work can be seen at www.eggshellmosaicart.com and art shows and galleries in Fulton, Saratoga, and Schenectady Counties.
