Galaxy Collectionthe artist merges design, color, shape, texture and light to express the complexity and beauty of the universe.
She often looks outside of an earthly lens and showcases her curiosity for entities beyond Earth in her work. His featured work, “LightWave Waterfall”, for example, was inspired by the possibility of waterfalls on other planets. This question was artistically presented through an 11′ x 7′ shaded glass assemblage, which is a combination of fire polished mirror, Swarovski crystal and glass panels in pastel colors saturated with cosmic watercolor hues, with tidal waves cascading over a canvas of glass.
