Statement

My art amalgamates old world majesty with contemporary charisma: think Queen Nefertti meets Carmen Miranda or Ganesha meets Lady Gaga.


I create figures, mostly women, from fired clay infused with aged and lustered surfaces. These surfaces are both fired and cold. The sculptures inspire paintings using oils, cold wax and collage. I am currently working on two series:


Ladies-Not-Waiting reference Old Master paintings: Velasquez, Fouquet, Manet, Kahlo...and Tsipora is my Hebrew name meaning Bird. This series, loosely self portraits, embrace an exotic earthiness living within the poetic imagination.


Both bodies of work address The Gaze: Looking inward Facing Outward. They speak to nesting and transcendence, the mirror and reflection, celebrating the individual and universal.
