"Urban Modern Wood Art"
I’m a physical therapist, wife and mommy by day and woodworker in my free time. I’ve been a lifelong nerd (I say as endearingly as possible), loving math, music and anything with pattern and have found a wonderful outlet in making mosaics with wood. I enjoy my time spent gathering ideas from nature, textiles and the urban world around me to create unique works of art for my home and yours.
