Loring Cornish uses discarded objects such as shards of glass, bottle caps, copper pennies, broken tiles, and metals to create faith-inspired mosaics and wall pieces. Before becoming a full-time artist, Cornish had a variety of jobs, including working as a deejay for a gospel radio station. Cornish says his inspiration comes from God and that his work is a reflection of his reliance on his faith.
