 The Book Nook & Java Shop -

Best Cellars Wine Bar

  Located in Montague Michigan -

 are the proud owners of 

my latest Glass Mosaic


This mosaic was inspired by the new look and renovation 
including a wine bar and a stage. My design I dreamed up this winter when discussing the plans with the Interior Designer-
Mary Payne of Mary Payne Interiors, Montague Michigan
The glass was carefully selected to give it the full beauty it deserves. The sky was inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night 
"I've always wanted to create that painting in glass"
The mosaic took many many hours to create with hundreds of tiny pieces of glass. Every single one carefully cut by hand
The mosaic was built in my studio on mosaic mesh then transported in pieces to the site installed then grouted to finish it off.

The Meaning of Embrace

“ Embrace” is a personal reflection of the myriad of distractions which take precedence over a woman’s life. The yearning for harmony, coupled with a woman’s compassionate nature often lead us to neglect our needs as we tend to the needs of others. This personal neglect comes at a cost, leaving us alone and battered by our kindness. Women’s innate capacity to create and sustain life predisposes us to protect and nurture others. “Embrace” reminds us to nurture our bodies our creativity and our souls. This act of replenishing enhances our loving caring nature.
        My life’s journey compelled me to create Embrace as a reminder to embrace my own soul. For too long, I neglected to shower equal measures of attention on myself leaving my body exhausted, my spirit depleted, and my mind in a state of confusion. Embrace reminds me that loving myself is an unselfish act which creates balance and sustains and restores my soul. Women of all cultures and status understand the pain and brutality life imposes on our gentle spirit. Our world will flourish when it embraces all woman and when we also learn to embrace ourselves.

EMBRACE 2011 Art Prize Entry

Embrace” a personal reflection of the myriad distractions which take precedence over a woman’s life.   The yearning for harmony, coupled with a woman’s compassionate nature often lead us to neglect our needs as we tend to the needs of others.   This personal neglect comes at a cost, leaving us alone and worn by our kindness. Women’s innate capacity to create and sustain life predisposes us to protect and nurture others. “Embrace”  reminds us to nurture our bodies our creativity and our souls.  This act of replenishing enhances our loving caring nature.    My life’s journey compelled me to create Embrace as a reminder to embrace my own soul. For too long I had neglected to shower equal  measures of attention on myself leaving my body exhausted, my spirit depleted, and my mind in a state of confusion.  Embrace reminds me that loving myself is an unselfish act which creates balance and sustains and restores my soul.    Women of all cultures and status understand the pain and brutality life imposes on our gentle spirit.   Our world will flourish when it embraces all woman and when we women learn to embrace ourselves.
