I sometimes wish I had the courage to follow in the footsteps of Polish-French artist, Balthus (1908-2001), who deplored disclosing personal details. He once insisted that the following notice be posted at the entrance to his exhibition: "Begin. Balthus is a painter of whom nothing is known. Now let us look at the pictures." However, once an artist places his or her art in public view, it is assumed that the public should also be privy to details about the artist - and perhaps rightly so.
I consider myself a “global artist at large.” Born in Paris, I grew up in Australia, lived for extended periods in Israel, and now reside in the United States. My life revolves around art - creating art, looking at art and writing about art. I exhibit extensively in regional and international shows, and my works can be found in both private and institutional collections. My work appeals to art lovers and collectors who appreciate beauty and skill, as well as an intellectually challenging or witty edge.
My diverse cultural background has been influential in shaping a multi-disciplinary approach towards my art. I have found that combining different mediums and art forms allows for a more complex visual language. Though my body of work is eclectic, it is defined by a conscious balance between the conceptual and the aesthetic - I attempt to find an equivalent balance in my personal life, some days more successfully than others! Welcome to my world.
