The Bloom Series Sculptures

Many people recognize me as an artist for my 2d mosaic landscape work as well as my outdoor mosaic sculpture as I have been creating and teaching mosaic art since 2007. In the last couple of years, I picked up the paintbrush after a 15 year break from the medium and today painting has once again become the main focus of my creative life. Still, I create large outdoor sculpture as my secondary passion and have expanded from beyond mosaics to large, welded steel forms. These works are exhibited each year in juried annual art exhibits though out Colorado as well as permanently installed in the 40 acre sculpture park I am building near the Great Sand Dunes National Park. Below is a peak at my new series of sculpture called 'Bloom'.


The series 'Bloom' is rooted in the intricate folk art of paper cutting from Poland, my place of birth. With 'Bloom III', I wanted to share the wonder that these forms inspire in me, hoping that the sculpture can do the same for others. The bright colors and fun, bulbous shapes are made to be eye catching, grabbing the viewer and pulling them in for a moment, adding something unique to their day out on the town. (Contact to order a custom 7.5ft tall flower sculpture or a set)

For all of my art across the mediums I love exploring, I take inspiration from what I find most beautiful in my surroundings as well as my life experiences. With my sculptures I aim to add beauty and interest to new places where the passerby can feel uplifted, inspired and discover something new. Above and below are two examples of my hand made mosaic sculpture - both are permanently installed at Mystic Valley Sculpture Park in Colorado - a collaborative art project with my life partner Kyle.
