|Artist Statement - Forest Collection
I was inspired to make these mosaics for the International Year of the Forest by the rich greens of the stained glass and smalti which I have used vertically to suggest the depths of the trees and forest. I have included millifiori flowers, eucalyptus cups and snail and sea shells to incorporate an idea of the variation and richness of the vegetation and life amongst the trees.

My mosaic „Trees are poems“ is inspired by the poem of Halil Gibran.

|Artist Statement - Forest Kaleidoscope
Attracted by the circular, 'kaleidoscopic effect' of looking up to the sky in the heart of a forest and embracing the international theme I aim to show that what you see above can be revealed by looking below - wherever you are standing on our globe.

|Artist Statement - La Mosaique de la Foret de Brotonne
I am concerned about the demise of the Bee and its implication for the planet; just like the standards we live by; both seem to be slowly and firmly eroded by our conscious and subconscious behaviour.
