Artist Statement:

I have always been fascinated by the creative process. I began my artistic career as a representational water color painter. My subject was  nature, mostly places I had been, with a focus on water and movement.  After a few years, feeling the need for further exploration, I began experimenting with abstraction and using acrylics.  My  paintings are a response to what I see, feel and hear or something that has made a major impact on me. Recent inspirations include the power felt when visiting an abandoned steel plant, personal experience, the current political environment and the work of other artists such as J.W.M. Turner, Jackson Pollock Agnes Martin and Helen Frankenthaler.
I begin a painting with an idea or an emotional reaction, rather than a vision of what it will look like when finished. I choose a color, and with a single gesture on the canvas, a dialogue opens, calling for a response. As with any conversation there are twists and turns. The process involves applying the paint, adding and changing color and texture, sometimes adding sand, mediums, or paint scrapings, applied with brushes, hands, palette knives, rug padding, chop sticks and more. I continue until the painting says "I am done".

My paintings are in private collections in the USA, Great Britain and Israel. I donate paintings to non profit organizations thru The Art Connection.
