I have been a professional artist for twenty-three years with a focus on mosaics since 2000. At Big Bang Mosaics I create installations in public, residential, and corporate settings nationwide. My diverse body of work ranges from illustrative to painterly to non-representational. My recent abstract mosaics have received prestigious national and international awards, including the Orsoni Prize Honorable Mention in Venice, Italy in 2011. I conduct numerous school and community projects (the most recent in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala in April of 2013) and teach in my studio and at several renowned art and craft centers across the country.
