Welcome! I am a self-taught pique assiette ("broken from plate")
mosaic artist who has been creating whimsical and elegant pieces since 1998. This is a wonderful way to combine my love of color, vintage pottery, china and jewelry into one alchemical medium. Each one-of-a-kind piece reveals itself to me moment by moment. I'm not always sure where the piece will go when I begin, but the piece knows!

I especially love custom work and I welcome wholesale opportunities.

You can visit my rarely-updated-but-very-cool personal web site here, and my not-updated-since-forever portfolio over on EBSQ here. Both sites contain many of my past creations, sold and commissioned, that will inspire you to lofty and dizzying heights should you wish to commission your own piece. You can also go to my etsy store to BUY STUFF NOW! Please.

What We Did While The House Passed HCR

I'm sorry, what?

Annie has done so much scent marking on the gazing ball stand that I suspect every dog in Cashiers Village will feel compelled to lift their leg on it all summer.

My lazy art interns.

The more I cover, the more there is to cover.

Looks nearly done, right? Not. Barely half covered. I might rethink that bowling ball idea, sweaty finger holes and all.

Annie pays rapt attention to the bloviating and speechifying hoping to hear how cats might benefit from the health care reforms being proposed.
(That's the just-completed brown trout frame she has mistaken for a La-Z-Boy.)

Clearly the needs of cat constituents have been ignored once again.

Art and politics are exhausting!


  1. can't wait to see what Annie has in store for the other side of the ball....

  2. The critters always ALWAYS lay where they are most in the damn way.....uncanny.

  3. PS HOW do you keep your work space so tidy????

  4. It's a delicate dance I do in the weaving together and perfect balancing of my OCD and Anal Retentive parts of self. (I'm just nuts, basically.)
