My mosaic art differs from most others because I use linoleum and vinyl as my medium. Since my pieces, for the most part, consist of discontinued materials, I must create my images using a limited range of color on my palette. That is the challenge I enjoy, putting these materials to a new and creative use. It all becomes art, rather than landfill!
In addition to the flooring samples and off-cuts, I use shipping crates and furniture to comprise most of the backing or “canvases”, completing the recycle theme. Much of my work is influenced by my love of vehicles, Oregon, colorful fowl, abstracts and architectural elements.
