"Sometimes, it might be a new technique, a particular material, or an image that I’d like to re-create, but I am always looking for that something different to inspire me.
Getting glass and grout to work together harmoniously is the goal I am always striving for. Choosing the right tesserae, the andamento, or directional flow of the rows keeps me pondering for awhile, but is all part of the challenge of mosaic making.
Working with the positive and negative spaces keeps the project constantly evolving. I am drawn to what happens between the pieces, the relationship of the next piece and the one placed before it, all the while being mindful of the mosaic as a whole.
With the endless possibilities I have to choose from and the constant decision making I am kept wonderfully engaged. When I work, usually late at night, it takes my daily stresses away, and it cannot be done hurriedly, it does take time."
