I am so glad you took the time to view my work. My influence and talent I can say came from my mother because she was a very talented lady. I'm self taught artist in Mosaics, pottery and many other mediums.
I was born and raised in Minnesota. Then I met my loving husband in South Dakota. We lived there until we moved to Lake Havasu City, AZ in 2000. Yes that is the home of the London Bridge.
I go to work each day in my studio that is in my back yard, look out on to the beautiful mountains, our land and all the life around me. turn on some music, listen to the birds and think what do I what to create today and I'm lucky to be able to do something I love so much.
My Quote is
Mosaic Artists have a dream and an idea of which is in the deeps of their brains that comes to the surface to be created with many different mediums for you to see.
