About Bit by Bit Mosaics

My interest in mosaics grew out of a renewed desire to utilize raw materials to create art after a long career in graphic design, though I admit I enjoy the assistance of computer technology in the initial creative process.

I employ small glass pieces as paint strokes and often enhance them by building a sculptural bas relief foundation that serves as a stage to present a moment in time. I prefer to establish a relationship

 

between my art and the viewer by using traditional subjects that soothe or amuse and for a few moments, can transport one to another world.

As I continue my journey through thousands of pieces of glass, my greatest reward is the reaction of viewers who do not equate the word mosaics to my work. Their surprise assures me of a new appreciation of this artform as a legitimate contemporary medium of expression.
