Mosaic Art & Murals


I have been a professional mosaicist for more than a decade.  Murals are my passion. My goal is to inspire community ownership of a space through beautification and participation.   

Mosaic art allows me to communicate so many things at once. The ability to use light, reflection and materials choices to inspire and inform a mural design that speaks to the public in a meaningful way is my ultimate satisfaction.

Metamorphosis is a 22" long mosaic mural commissioned by the Bethany Hope Centre of Ottawa, Ontario installed in 2013

I recently had the joy of going to Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, 300 miles north of the Arctic circle to lead  2 community murals. This is the first one completed in Nov 2011.

This is the second mural created with the Kitikmeot Heritage Centre in Nunavut in May 2012. Follow our progress here.

This beautiful mosaic was created for the St. Clare School for their 100th anniversary.
