Many times words serve as a point of reflection into our heart, and many times art is needed to express yet another dimension of the deep feeling behind a human experience. For me working with mosaics supports the understanding that there are many pieces to the puzzle of life. These pieces are composed of various shapes, textures, colors, and size, and speak to the awareness of finding the complement through the existence of the other. Mosaics sublimate the journey of life through embracing the myriad paths of our individual and collective destinies. The embrace is demonstrated through the relationship with the art object simultaneously serving as a metaphor for the world and the soul. I have found the journey of the art materials mirroring the evolution of our consciousness; they begin in one form, are broken down or change shape, and then come together in the end as one. The mosaic process is that of patience and guidance, letting the pieces show you where they need to be placed, thus allowing for an organic creation. Each individual will be drawn to create certain patterns that the world of the psyche(soul) can understand, and art celebrates this unique expression. When I create a mosaic I feel connected to my soul, the earth, and the hearts of others.
