Were you ever drawn to something in particular as a child? Perhaps it was merely a spark of innocent curiosity at first, or a spirited fascination, or that special "something" to have found you.
For me, it was always art.
My formal exposure to art was minimal. I educated myself by reading every art book available at my local library and spent endless hours observing- and immersed in art of every medium and style. I studied the old masters as well as contemporary artists the world over. What remains the most fundamental element to my growth as an artist, is the openness to truly see; opening myself up to observe the most magical and truest form of art... nature and the world around us.
Time, patience and a lot of practice allowed me to garner the skills to successfully render the visions I wished to share.
The challenge and potential for growth are an integral part of what I love about being an artist.
There is no finale, just a continuous, lifetime of observing, learning and improving as I enjoy each step of the journey. The possibilities are infinite!
My work is comprised of figurative compositions and portraits. I strive to capture the story, the emotions, the very soul and essence of the most fascinating and beautiful of all G-d’s creations: human beings. My fascination with humanity, based on my heritage and identity as a Jewish woman, is expressed in my paintings.
As an artist, I have an inherent need to paint what I see; to bring the beauty that surrounds me to life; in color and form. Even more importantly, I want to share this with you. For what is art if it is not shared?
