 Artist Notes
- Born to Dance -

The "Born To Dance" mosaic triptych was created by the following method. Most of my custom stone commissions follow this pattern. The client requests a theme or subject, if they have one in mind. They are offered a choice of tesserae, which are compatible with the architectural appointments. Depending on the size of the commission, 300 to 2000 stones are washed and sealed, then scattered at random about the room. It is a challenging process to explain that the picture is already there on the rocks: creative selection will allow the picture to develop and reveal itself, piece by piece. It involves watching and listening so that the stones can guide the picture along using the artists hand and eye to audition each stone and execute an image that is preconceived but not completely finished or assembled. No preliminary sketches are made or offered.
