DINOSAURS RULE STAMFORD DOWNTOWN STEGOSAURUS WIP

"Starosaurus" WIP Glass mirror and stained glass mosaic WIP. Excited to be participating in the Stamford Downtown, Art in Public Spaces, "Dinosaurs Rule!" 2015. This show is sure to be a blast. There will be 40 fantastical dinosaurs on display in downtown Stamford. Stamford, CT is one city that truly supports the arts and artists. I'm Honored to be in the show. The exhibition opens June 10, 2015 thru September. The dinosaurs will be auctioned off for charity in October. My "Starosaurus" is sponsored by the Stamford Town Center. So excited. Now, back to work!

Siovhan and I met online through a mosaic Facebook group called "My Mosaic Friends." Until that point, I had never met a black mosaic artist. I remember how excited we were to find that we lived not far from each other. We were ecstatic to meet in person. Over the past several months, Siovhan and I have become fast friends. I appreciate Siovhan's technical approach to her materials, as well as her impeccable methods of cutting. We are so different in our philosophies regarding styles and techniques within mosaic crafting. Our differences have made our conversations about mosaic craft and design very dynamic. I am honored to have Siovhan's beautiful mosaic work in the Out of Bounds exhibition.

Work in progress 1/8/14. Employing the direct method. My approach to making is art is very free form. I am very lucky that I am able to complete the creation  and installation on site. A tremendous amount of planning went into the designing of this mosaic. However, I am composing organically.
