“My current work is a reflection of my home and surroundings, in Lake Superior’s Chequamegon Bay area …Each piece is inspired by the beauty of the local landscape or the personalities of the animals that inhabit this landscape. With these mosaics, I link art and nature in a way that draws attention to, and generates a deeper appreciation for, the interdependent habitats and ecosystems supporting the diverse flora and fauna of the Chequamegon Bay area.”
“Working with mixed media mosaics, I continue to enjoy cataloging the flora and fauna of the south shore of Lake Superior.”
