My creative mind works quicker than my hands do. I always have lots of visuals swimming in my head. First, I gather my palette from all of my china and discarded treasures, and from there I simply let go to the process and let the piece fly! My mom has always been a big influence in my life. I have a MFA from NYU in costume design, so it was my mom’s suggestion that I mosaic dresses. When I saw hanging in a craft store, half of a dress in a metal form, I was inspired. I bought 50 to make a series. I teach all over the globe now because I love sharing my creative process. It is very empowering to me to share what I love to do.I learn as much from my students as they learn from me. Together we build community through my classes. Once you take a class from me you are forever part of a very special group of creative souls.
