These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.



And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

hmm. I have just started doing some 'research' on mosaci work. I want to make a ceiling rose in a sort of Gaudi style for my bedroom, but have no talent or know-how at all. I was thinking of buying a kit from a craft suppliers to just have a go at something before i go 'freestyle'. Your works are lovely by the way.

Filbert- mosaic work is all about patience. Really, that's the main thing you have to have. You can create a pattern pretty easily and lay it all out-- the best way to do that with a large scale work is to use a grid system. But really the entire thing is an excercise in patience. If you don't like jigsaw puzzles, you're unlikely to find mosaics anything but frustrating,

i think i might just about manage to stay calm enough to do it, i have had the idea for a couple of years now, i just hope i can make it look as good in reality as it does in my head.
