Facebook: Pangea Mosaics
When did art become a pursuit for you?
Since I was a small child. At age five, I began drawing various Disney characters from memory. I made my very first mosaic when I was eight, a pinto pony from sea glass I collected from a nearby beach. That mosaic won second prize at the Boston Archdiocese Art Show in 1971.
What mediums do you work in, and how did you choose them?
Mixed media, particularly recycled materials that can be put into a mosaic.
What is your creative process?
I try to be as intuitive as possible, though mosaic work is often a planned process. I try to challenge myself with untried concepts and unusual materials.
How do you choose your subject matter? Are there themes that recur throughout your work?
The ocean is a recurring theme since I grew up by the Atlantic. Social and environmental themes are often showing up in my work.
What other media or directions would you like to explore?
I’m very interested in exploring installation art, and large scale public art.
Do you have a day job in addition to your art practice? If so, what is it?
I’m a full time artist; I worked for over twenty five years in art education.
