Artist Statement

It's all about glass tiles, marble gold and cement. It's all about colors, designs, heritage and inspiration. It's finally artwork to hang, mirrors, tables and decorative objects. 

Drawing inspiration from everyday sources like linen, carpets, and china, I meticulously craft my designs. I combine shapes and colors to weave a world rich in hues, textures, and a sense of comfort. Additionally, a significant part of my work involves translating the essence of celebrated artists like Klimt, Van Gogh, and Eastern creators into mosaic forms.

My toolkit comprises unassuming yet versatile materials – glass tiles tesserae, subtle glimmers of gold, mirrors that catch fleeting reflections, and the classic touch of marble, stone, and even fragmented china. The delicate intricacies of Murano millefiori find a place in this artistic tapestry too.

Every piece I create is meant to find a home in your space, whether adorning walls or gracing floors. And what makes each creation truly special is its individuality – a reminder of the craftsmanship that breathes life into every component, making each piece as unique as the space it inhabits.
