Folded paper and mosaic are, at first glance, quite distinct media and processes.  Yet they both play with pattern and repetition, geometry and rhythm.  Pieces come together, often unexpectedly, to form a puzzle.  Light and shadow interact to create a deeper, more complex image.  My work in paper and mosaic is mathematical and meditative; it feeds needs that I have as a mother of three, as I attempt to nurture myself and others around me.

 

I am available for commissions in mosaic or paper arts.  Please email me at msilverstein10@icloud.com.
