I was born in the US, and have been living and creating in Jerusalem since 1980. At times, I feel like an acrobat, bouncing between two competing, yet complementary cultures. Likewise, my artwork is a balancing act: I juggle my commitments to serious artistic concerns, and to Jewish traditions and beliefs, with pleasure from adventures in colour, pattern and temperament.
