New Zen Panel Installed in Retek Building, Minneapolis

Flowing Zen Panel

I recently completed a 5ft x 7ft mosaic panel for the lobby of the Retek Building, 50 South Tenth, in downtown Minneapolis.  This is the largest panel I’ve completed and features extra large Flowing Oval tiles, sliced agates, assorted fossils and polished river rock.  It compliments the stone and design of the lobby to the building.  It’s open to the public so stop by and take a look.

Best in show at Minnesota Tile Festival!

I recently won a Best in Show Award at the Minnesota Tile Festival in September.  My work was voted most creative by St. Paul Pioneer Press!  I was very excited to win the award and also have it presented by Josh Blanc of Claysquared to Infinity, my mentor and the man who taught me how to make tile.  Thanks Josh!

Ridgedale Public Library Benches

Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, Minnesota

I was lucky to be part of a three artist team to come up with a cohesive design for the entry lobby of the Ridgedale Library. Randy Walker created a hanging sculpture, Josh Blanc designed the floor pattern, and I created the benches. We worked together so the pieces would complement each other and the architecture of the building. My benches feature my handmade Zen Tiles with colorful bands coordinating with the lines on the floor. Shane Carrier created the metal framework and FK Art Glass created the glass tiles incorporated in the mosaic. It was an exciting project to be part of.
