My artwork is inspired by the hidden or modest splendor of the natural earth around me. Using slate, marble, stone, stained glass, ceramic tile, smalti, and other re-purposed and found objects. I focus on the beauty of the element itself. I then strive to highlight its color, design, or other
understated detail through Andamento. Andament refers to the line or flow a mosaic artist creates with the placement of each tesserae.
