My background is in photography, and I had the good fortune to study at the University of New Mexico in the early 1980s when it's photography program was nationally recognized. Since that time, digital cameras and editing software have changed the way we process images, but good composition and subject matter will never be replaced. A lot of my work begins with a photograph, and I will transform the image into something new and different. But sometimes, there is nothing like a good old black and white.
CLAY MOSAIC PANELS
Like so many other of my artistic endeavors, I took a workshop from a group that had done many clay mosaic murals that I admired. After a second workshop, I was hooked and started a journey creating mosaic panels for my backyard. Each became more involved and I barely finished one before starting another. This is what I've completed so far.
