I am an artist living in Victoria, BC Canada.
For me creating mosaics is a meditative process of combining the materials together, to discover what becomes of these pieces and how laying the next piece beside it can either create something pleasing or disorderly. The mosaic process is frustrating at times but it is also very rewarding once completed.
My inspiration comes from my interest and fascination with other cultures, costumes, and traditions and also from dreams or visions. I am a Yoga Instructor and Yoga Therapist and during my personal practice I often see images that inspire me to create.
I also read many personal stories and books about women’s issues and what life is like for women in different cultures and am often inspired by stories of women overcoming great obstacles and the courage they show in difficult circumstances.
Reading these stories has inspired me to donate 10% of all my direct mosaic sales to charities that help protect the rights of women and girls.
