"Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky" - Gibran
I have been making my non-traditional stained glass mosaics for 25 years. My style is to make mosaics that use deliberately shaped, hand cut larger pieces that are sometimes hand painted which are usually only used in the making of windows. I find this to be the best way to highlight the unique streaks and markings in the glass, details that are lost when they're cut into smaller pieces. My pendants are made with upcycled glass from my mosaic art. I have now also added sun catchers and small windows to my shop.
I've spent most of my life in Toronto with many trips to cottage country. I love both the chaotic energy of the big city and slow pace of small towns. Regardless of where I am I have always sought out nature spots to indulge in present moment awareness. I now reside full time on a small rural homestead in North Kawartha surrounded by endless inspiration.
