Connie’s intent is to redefine the purpose of any unique individual object while transforming it with color and texture, imagination, humor and love.
She is drawn to the unique and colorful, and appreciates the subtle nuances and energy she finds in the simplicity of nature. She enjoys working with shells, stones, recycled glass, found objects, petrified wood and a variety of other treasures to create custom fused glass and mosaic installations, original organic sculpture and one of a kind items for the home.
Her passion for the mosaic medium was a natural progression from her love of collecting. This is represented by her work both in the fine arts and commercial commissions. Collecting vintage pottery, found objects, glazed and unglazed ceramics, antique china and glass, shells, petrified wood, rocks and anything else that speaks to her intuition is a daily joy. Mosaic art became an instant source of expression. Through technical study with artists such as Sonia King and Sherry Warner Hunter, Connie’s ability to express her creative gift continues.
In 2015, her “Shell Shocker” was awarded the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, Texas Chapter, John Staub Award, Honorable Mention. In 2010 Connie won a Juror’s Choice Award in the Society of American Mosaic Artists' Mosaic Arts International exhibit for her large-scale installation grotto.
