Artist Statement

I am an artist and art educator specializing in mosaic art, mosaic murals and painted murals.

I have been commissioned to create and facilitate murals both locally and internationally. Through my many travels throughout the US, Europe and Central America, and in my Artist-in-Residence programs, I have observed how art and the creative process manifest themselves in diverse ways – they can be catalysts for self-empowerment, the fuel for teamwork and healing, and instruments for change. Creating public murals is a testimony to the capacity of art to transform people, communities and cultures.

My mission is quite simple: to bring beauty to public spaces and to empower children and adults to be creative thinkers.

I have a degree in Communications, studied art in Ravenna and Venice, Italy and Interior and Landscape Design in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
