Let me take you on a journey...
Have you ever been to a special place or a moment in time you don't want to forget?
Ever felt an emotion expressed through a kaleidoscope of colours, patterns, textures, and shapes you can feel and touch?
Welcome to my world of self-expression through the art of ceramic mosaic.
