I started making art as a small child and have always taken art classes, even while pursuing degrees in Hebrew and Computer Science. Most recently, I have studied with Vitek Kruta, a professional artist trained in the Old World techniques of the European masters. It is with Vitek that I learned the methods that I am currently using in my work.
I love color. I especially enjoy playing with color placement, exploring the effect a color’s proximity to its neighbor has on each of them. When I paint, I get to experience color in all of its vibrant beauty. While paint enables me to commune with color, creating with clay allows a more tactile interaction, providing its own unique satisfaction. Whatever the medium, it opens new possibilities and ideas in my creative process.
My present focus is Jewish-themed art. I find inspiration and meaning from working with the symbols of my Jewish heritage. I feel gratified to create art that can enhance the beauty and warmth of one’s environment and provide a sense of cultural identification and connectedness.
