After studying art at the Art Institute of Chicago, I worked for 3 years at the Chicago Mosaic School where I discovered my passion for mosaic art. It was at CMS where I met and began to appreciate mosaic masters from Italy, France, England, Australia, and Japan. I was fortunate to revive the connection to my old world, Europe.
After 15 years in America, I returned to Germany in 2013. Since then, I have attended workshops in France and Italy and taken part international mosaic symposia. I keep the established contacts alive and deepen my own mosaic language with enthusiasm. I now work as a freelance artist and art teacher in Ulm. I exhibit my work nationally and internationally.
