Living near the coast has always felt right for me and influences my art. I grew up in southern Maine but I lived in Alaska most of my life. My wife Kath and I used the boat we built to explore the coast in South Central AK. In 2010 we moved to the Oregon coast where we now live.
Some years ago I saw an amazing mosaic wall mural at the Pratt museum in Homer AK which sparked the idea to give it a try myself. I have found mosaic to be a very versatile medium allowing an incredible range of possibilities, and a LOT less maunal labor than the stone, slate, and tile work I did in the past for hearths..
I am still experimenting. I have used various glass wall tiles, ceramic wall tiles, and a variety of mosaic tiles such as Prism, aura metallic, smalti, sigris iridium. I'm now playing with concrete, sandblasting and mixed media.
