Artists Statement

I am a visual artist that designs holistic geometric stained glass and stone wall pieces.

My designs are inspired by nature, and I explore the energy patterns and history of stones used by ancient cultures. Stone healing can be dated back to the ancient civilizations in present day Greece, Egypt, Italy, China, Japan and India. These cultures used stones to enhance their physical and emotional health before current day medical systems were adopted.

By studying and applying how ancient civilizations used stones in their daily lives, my desire is to help people today maintain harmony in their lives and within their own home the same way as our ancestors.

Through visual appeal, design and knowledge of stone properties, I strive to create an experience, something observers can feel visually, emotionally and spiritually when in the presence of my artwork.
