BIO & STATEMENT
As an artist from my youth, I’ve been motivated to create art based on my observations of the beauty in people and nature. At the age of 14, my art was chosen to represent the Salute to Israel Parade. As the contest winner, I led the parade route marching with the Former Mayor Koch of New York City. The experience gave me the confidence to expand my repertoire and begin exploring art using many different mediums. During this time, I studied at Brooklyn Museum Gallery/Studio Program and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens Workshops.
As an adult, I studied art at Parsons; The New School for Design and The Guild in Shrewsbury. Recently, I earned my Associates degree in Fine Arts from Kingsborough Community College. I also had the opportunity to learn and work with artists Marcy Sultan, Rochelle Sitt, and Professor of Fine Art Manel Llados.
My work has been exhibited at the Decorator Showcase in Deal, NJ; at Parci Parla in Brooklyn; I was the featured artist at an interior design event at The Sephardic Community Center in Brooklyn, NY and in a Private Showing at Parlor Gallery, Asbury Park, NJ.
As an artist, my work takes on femininity with strength and optimism. The colors are saturated, bold, and multi-layered. The paintings are instinctive and have a gestural quality.
Many of my earlier works can be described as figurative. Many involved watercolor landscapes or botanicals. Today, however, I paint bold, fearless, abstracts on oversized canvases in modern and contemporary themes.
While working with a watercolor base, I add inks and acrylics on top to add dimension, texture, and saturation to a piece. With acrylics, I work in layers creating depth and interest usually beginning with an under drawing.
I specialize in, site specific art, created based on interviews and consultations with my clients. My clients and their surroundings become the inspiration to create art that will become a part of their life. I maintain a steady voice throughout while learning from the art of others. My art is the aesthetic that brings the value of uniqueness to a space.
Frank Stella, Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg, and Roy Lichtenstein are only some of the many artists I look to for wisdom and inspiration.
My work is ever evolving. Each new piece builds on the themes and techniques explored in the one created previously. My paintings evoke emotion through the use of vibrant and rich color and the luscious texture of the acrylic paint.
I have worked with acrylics, collage, oil, watercolors, mosaic, sculpture, and mixed media.
