About Me

My photo
I am an artist who feels that my art is my life's work. Creating art each day literally feeds my soul. I studied Studio Art at The Museum School of Fine Arts, Boston MA. I have recently discovered that I love to create Mosaic Paintings with paper tiles. My greatest inspiration for my mosaic paintings is the beautiful art nouveau style of art that Alphonse Mucha created.

Day 1 "Mucha Redhead"

I hope to do this justice. Alphonse Mucha's original is simply breathtaking to me. I thought I'd give it a go and see what a similar image would look like as a Mosaic.

Inspired by Alphonse Mucha

My next Mosaic is inspired by Alphonse Mucha. His original "Rêverie" 1897. "Like Zodiac, this lithograph was originally designed to serve as the 1898 Champenois company calendar. However, its immediate popularity led to its swift publication by the magazine La Plume as a decorative panel with the title Reverie (daydream). French Art Nouveau"

Day 9 WIP "Street Performers"

This piece is coming along slowly but surely. I've used all kinds of textured paper tiles to mosaic the street performers with their instruments. I continue to use paper tiles on wood because I'm really happy with the effect it creates. The possibilities are endless with the wide array of scrapbook papers out there. Some are metallic, velvet, glittered I love it! Tomorrow I will begin to tackle the background.
