Artist Statement

I am a Londoner living in Boston. While I have been here for 20 years, I still bring an outsider's eye to American life.

My formal art training began at the Wimbledon Art School in London, followed by four years at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Israel's national school of art.

I try to create works that are thought provoking. The themes I explore are often - though not always - inspired by cultural currents.

My recent work has included monotypes whose subjects populate the gray clouds that have darkened the sky during the past year. These have included a range of topical and historical themes, including Narcissus, Nike (the Greek goddess of Victory), and the cultural nexus between Russia and America.
