INSTALLATIONS AND FINE ART
creating beautiful spaces for inside and out, public and private
Mosaic maker, teacher, explorer, intrepid traveler, Deb is a trained Landscape Architect who has spent years focused on the act of creating. She began drawing as a toddler, moved onto painting and finally to dimensional objects and the creation of spaces such as gardens, way-finding and public art. She saw her first mosaic at the Louvre in Paris at the age of 17. It was a sea change moment and she knew she would make mosaics….but it took 20 years to get back to it! She now creates mosaics for cities and residences all over the USA and abroad.
She began making mosaics 1997. Her education and background in art and landscape architecture led her to work on large scale outdoor pebble and stone mosaic terraces, fountains and wall hangings. She has completed both interior and exterior works for residential and commercial clients such as hospitals, boutique hotels and restaurants. Among her clients is the city of Hollywood FL, the town of Killingly CT and most well known of all Tom Brady and his wife Giselle Bundchen. Deb has received numerous awards for her art and her work has been on exhibit at SAMA Mosaic Arts International, The Museum of Glass in Tacoma, WA, Galleries in Ireland, Austria, and all across America. She has work in collections internationally and has taught all over the world including Guatemala, Europe and Guatemala.
She learned her craft from Maggy Howarth, Sherri Warner Hunter, Sophie Drouin, Verdiano Marzi, Kim Emerson and countless other teachers/classes. She has spent time in Europe studying mosaics and taking immersive workshops. This year, 2020 she will be teaching there!! When not working on commissions she enjoys spending time in the studio using her own voice using pebbles, stone and glass, shell, bone, metal detritus and other oddities to create dimensional works in a contemporary style. She has been teaching art for the last 22 years and travels across the North America and abroad teaching mosaics, retreats and working on projects.
