About The Artist

I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from Tyler School of Art, at Temple University in Philadelphia. My work as a graphic designer includes art and design in Israel, New York City, London, England and Toronto, Canada.

After ten years in design, I shifted to ceramic art. My focus centered on figurative ceramic sculpture and hand-built vases as well as custom glazed tiles. As a clay artist, I participated in juried fine arts shows in Toronto and had my art featured in several galleries.

With my return to the U.S., it was to explore another facet of art. At the Art Students League of New York, I began painting portraits with models in oil paint. I worked alla prima which means that I finished each portrait in a single session. I enjoyed the challenge of working fast to capture the nuances of the model’s character and countenance. A landscape painting workshop in Italy was my first experience with plein air (outdoor) painting. I have since done quite a few workshops in various parts of the U.S. Recently, I have begun experimenting with large-scale watercolor paintings utilizing the movement and freedom of spattered and controlled dripping of paint.

I became a full time one in the last year and aside from plein air and studio oil painting I also do large scale watercolors in my studio.

I am a member of the Art Students League of New York City, New Jersey Plein Air Painters, and the New Arts Group, and serve on the Millburn Arts Advisory Committee. I have taught art in various capacities including in local public schools. I give private lessons to select students.
