PeaceWorks Mosaics


I was a storyteller for more than 20 years, with special interest in working with the bereaved and also telling the story of Holocaust survivor Hilda Stern Cohen.

What is consistent for me in the art of storytelling and the art of mosaics, is a search for authentic emotional content and an intention to find meaning. I want to offer an opportunity to listeners/viewers to find meaning for themselves.

I love traditional glass and stone mosaics, but also all sorts of materials and found objects. I adore the play of light on the shiny stuff and the variety of movement and meaning.

Each facet of mosaic has a voice – focal point, background and the context of display. Inspiration comes from a particular mineral or stone, a color, nature, or another work of art.

Sometimes there is a feeling to express or a story to tell, sometimes a plan, sometimes not, but always an organic and surprising process. Fun!

Chakra Goddess Series

The inspiration for these mosaics is the concept of chakra, Sanskrit for wheel, thought to be an energy point in the energetic or subtle body, related to the physical body. There are many chakras, but seven are considered most important. Each has traditionally been represented with a color from the rainbow spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. (Sold as a set.)

Crown Chakra (violet)
The crown chakra is our connection to our Source energy, awareness, optimism, wisdom and connection. Here is the Lotus pose, used for meditation that balances the body and calms the mind. All of the chakras, represented by their colors, are aligned.
Root Chakra (red)
This is the energy that grounds us, gives us balance, dignity, stability and strength. Here is an image of a female energy, rooted in earth with energy to grow and reach.
Sacral Chakra (orange)
The sacral chakra is the center of our sexual energy, vitality, nurturing qualities and fertility. This is the yoga camel pose, opening up chest, hips, groin and thighs to energize and awaken body and mind.
Solar Plexus Chakra (yellow)
The solar plexus is our center of courage, determination, autonomy and self-confidence.
Third Eye Chakra (indigo)
Third eye is our energy door to intuition, imagination, and inspiration. This is the Hand of Fatima or Hamsa, popular in both Arab and Jewish communities as a symbol of protection and good luck.
Throat Chakra (blue)
The throat chakra is our energetic communication center, also tied to truth, kindness and reliability. This is the Egyptian goddess Bastet, a woman with the head of a lioness. Throat chakra makes me think of the purr of a cat, which for me, feels true and kind.
Heart Chakra (green)
This is the energy center of integration, compassion, devotion, love for self and others. This is a depiction of Hathor, ancient Egyptian goddess of joy and love. Both women and men became her priests.
