For many years I focused on creating one-dimensional mosaic murals. In 2014 I decided to start a three-dimensional adventure creating custom pieces with mannequins, or any other object, with a goal of creating pieces that communicate something new depending on what view or angle they are observed from. As the observer walks around my piece patterns change and unexpected textures and visions are seen.


For consignment work I meet with clients and design based on their material selections, the space the piece will be located and whatever happens to inspire them. I have now ventured into constructing my own structures often cutting and molding 2 or 3 mannequins and other material together to make the right shape to achieve the fun and energy of three-dimensional art. I still love to create one-dimensional wall, floor or ceiling pieces as well.
