Born and raised in Victoria, BC, I started to dabble with drawing and painting at a very young age. I have always loved the ocean and gardening. In my late teens, my medium was creating gardens. I owned and operated a gardening business for 10 years until I attended University. While raising a family I began "It's All Mosaic" creating mosaic home decor art and furniture using tile, wood and metal which sold throughout Western Canada and the USA. As I have always loved the ocean and gardening, I created acrylic garden art paintings for the outdoors. This lead me to my other love, the ocean. Using sea glass, shells, sand, rocks, driftwood and beads I have created sea glass art on reclaimed picture frames and windows to create seascape art.
"garden art feeds the soul"
Sea Glass journey begins as bottle or jar that has been tumbled on the ocean floor, smoothed by the waves and sand. After the years of exposure the glass breaks into smaller rounded pieces that take on a frosted look. Each piece has it's own story to tell.
My art begins searching out for gently used picture frames and antique windows. Each frame or window has an antique/rustic look by painting, distressing and or staining to create a rustic charm.
With the ready picture frames and windows the fun begins. Using resin, sea glass, beads, sand, driftwood and shells the limitless blends of materials are woven together to create one of a kind art pieces.
My work can be made for commission or purchased from a selection of ready-to-buy pieces. All sea glass are handmade, one-of-a-kind and original.
Each piece will bring depth and style to your home or office.
