"Every project is a unique opportunity to find my own voice with the composition, lines, and color." - Rachel
Everything about glass fascinates me, the endless combinations of colors, textures, transparency, even the sound it makes when I cut it into different shapes. Every project is a unique opportunity to find my own voice with composition, lines, and color.
When I start a new mosaic project I don’t plan ahead of time. There is no pre-sketching or choosing of colors before I begin. Everything flows together as the work progresses and I only know what the finished piece will look like when it is completed.
I am a self-taught mosaicist, who started as a stained glass artist. I saved my glass scraps for a distant opportunity. It finally came when I received a pair of glass nippers and a bag of grout from a close friend.
From there, I quickly fell in love with creating mosaics. I revel in each and every project and drive great joy from the response of people who view my work.
I am a member of CMA, Full Spectrum Mosaic Artists of Silicon Valley, and Los Altos Art Club.
