I describe my art, as Freestyle Mosaics or Folk art. I hand make and paint all of my tiles. I then cut/smash and place all of those tiles individually, for my mosaic art pieces. Ideas for my art pieces come from anything that might inspire me; religion, a rug, a person, a phrase, a photograph, a song or something in nature. Once I decide what I am going to do I begin to draw. My drawings are never too detailed, allowing the mosaic materials to influence the final outcome of my art work.
