Born in the U.S. in 1961, Israel has been my home for most of my life. I live with my family in a small hilltop community in the Galilee, with my studio looking out on a beautiful and complex physical and human landscape.
Painting is a lifetime commitment, a source of inspiration and a continual challenge. Observation of reality keeps me focused, providing a foundation for journeys exploring multilevel identities, histories, and even languages, with text playing a role in many of my works.
