Artist Statement

I am an artist whose style is uniquely mine. My work has been called sophisticated by many with a universal appeal testified to by my long list of exhibitions both nationally and abroad. A teacher at the People's Institute of the Museum of Modern Art compared my work to composing music.
My collagraphs, which are printed from a cardboard plate, are a good support for collage. The medium is a two-dimensional fine-art form dating from the 12th century in the Far East, and lends itself well to self-expression. Collage is the most democratic medium as materials are common and available to everyone. The word itself comes from the French, colle, which means to paste or glue, making it a pasted picture. My collage, "Impromptu #9," is in the collection "Art Colle" in the Museum of Collage, Bretagne, France.
Some of my more notable shows include one-person exhibitions at the Union of Hebrew Congregations in Manhattan, at the Silvermine Art Center in Connecticut, and at the Hudson River Museum, Yonkers, NY. I've also accepted invitations to display my art at Reader's Digest and Kraft/General Foods in Westchester, in the exhibition entitled "Conversation between Cultures" sponsored by the Westchester Council for the Arts and the Hudson River Museum. General Foods in Tarrytown has my watercolors in their collection. I've won awards, both for my watercolors and prints, and I've been selected in a long list of noteworthy juried shows including traveling exhibits to Japan, India and Denmark, sponsored by the National Association of Women Artists. For the past several years, I have been listed in "Who's Who in American Art" and in "Who's Who in the East."
My dream is, and has been, to have my work reach across borders to bring people together. The rich earthy colors speak to everyone in his or her language.
