I have always balanced and enriched my life as an epidemiologist with the practice of a wide spectrum of artistic media. When I encountered mosaic art, however, what started as a leisure pursuit evolved into a full time career.

I work closely with schools and temples creating unique, and personalized class gifts. Each kid gets to choose colors and names in the language of their preference. These gifts are available for kids all ages from age 0 to age 120, students, parents, staff, donors, etc.

I enjoy sharing my passion for mosaics by offering mosaic classes and, by facilitating mosaic community projects for people of all ages: school kids, college students, and adult groups. Mosaics are ideal for nursing home community enrichment activities, as a way to commemorate someone or a special occasion, for corporate team building events, and at countless additional occasions.

My mosaic work includes clocks, wine holders, mirrors, Judaica, and many other items. My work shows how every little tile holds on to its own individuality but also maintains a special interconnectedness and even interdependence to the pieces surrounding it. This is particularly evident during the process of “grouting” when all the individual tiles come together to form one piece. This feeling gets more noteworthy when I re-use parts of peoples’ broken jewelry, computers, and other gadgetry and combine them with colorful glass tiles to create unconventional forms. Sometimes it seems like one tile is having a conversation with another…Sometimes they need a bit of space among them but when I smooth the edges of one or both of them, they can talk again, respect each other, and in fact, their differences, as in life, enrich the final mosaic product.

My mosaic work is a combination of glass and ceramic tiles with broken jewelry and parts of obsolete electronic devices that otherwise accumulate as trash. The resulting mosaic pieces seem to capture the high-tech mystic those electronic devices once had and they seek to celebrate the beauty of human differences through their unconventional and “chromatilistic” forms.
