Mosaic Accent Mirrors

I did a series of these 10.5" square mirrors, each with a different theme. This hearth mirror example is called "Peculiar Attraction" and it's about the use of tile and that artist in the upper right corner is me. The copy says "There are peculiar attractions in decorative tiles. Pave a hearth then light a fire. Enjoy the magical effect. Designs relieve monotony and exert a soothing influence." Don't you agree?

Tile Jewelry Pendants

I found a new way to use my letter tiles - jewelry! Prices depend on size ( 1/2" to 1 1/2") and metal type used in pendant and chain.

Cat tiles custom kitchen wall

I made these cat tiles to go on a wall behind a stove. They are 6" square portraits of the owners' cats along with their names. It seemed like a great way to combine images with copy. The wall is a real focal point in the kitchen…and conversation piece!
