Beautiful paintings. meaningful narratives.

Welcome to my Gallery!

As an artist, it is important to create work that genuinely comes from within. 

“My paintings are reflective of my life and experiences,  I'm interested in the role played by the unconscious in my work, and I choose not to force the outcome, but rather let it emerge out of the process of painting itself. The final composition is a result of these lifetime experiences.”

I think what it takes to make a great piece of art is to connect with the observer on an emotional or personal level.
Constructed with many layers, the stories within my paintings are both literal and figurative, whether abstracts with lines and shapes, or narratives depicting historical events. The viewer is asked to look through and pull apart each layer from the topmost to the foundational, seeing how they all work together to form what’s currently visible to the eye. What you see on the top layer can only exist by building upon the layers below, just as history does not happen in a vacuum but is built upon previous events. 

I believe that art is a powerful form of communication, sometimes visceral and sometimes direct. The purpose of my work is to make the viewer feel connected, joyful, loved and enthused. Art has the potential to heal, enrich and enlighten. It’s my greatest ambition to create art that reaches you.

Woven throughout many of my paintings are calligraphic marks symbolizing hand lettering and gestures, movements of words and emotions. Sometimes these marks are actual Hebrew or English lettering, sometimes they are marks giving the painting vibrancy and definition, weaving together organic shapes with threads of language that we as humans use to communicate. Language is something tangible that we can all understand. Regrettably, language is also something that can be used to distort history, depending on who is narrating the story.

Inspiration

Travel, reading, and raising my now adult four children have given me my own unique perspective on life, tradition, culture, and politics. That, and a couple of famous abstract artists thrown in as well!

Techniques

I paint mainly with acrylics using palette knives for very textural layers. Details are added with ink, oil pastels, and charcoal.
