Painting has taken me to many physical and spiritual places. I paint and draw from reality and memory. I look for interesting compositions, beautiful light and shadows and the intimacy found in the details of particular locations.
My collages are made from papers that I paint, cut and assemble in abstracted compositions, but could remind the viewer of landscapes.
I also create works with Jewish themes for special occasions and institutions (paintings, murals and collages) as well as individualized "Blessings" for a newborn, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, weddings and other special occasions. Check out my original Haggadah, The Essential Seder, A Contemporary Haggadah, (published by Behrman House). These make great gifts (including the hand-painted placemats)!
