STRIPES
Abstract collages inspired by the striped clothing that I have been seeing EVERYWHERE even in rural China

 
TIBET: Stones of Resonance
Collages combining my alcohol ink papers with photos I took while traveling in Tibet — inspired by the powerful and serene Buddhist architecture at the Sera Monastery and Potala Palace in Lhasa.

 
CHINA: Stones of Resonance
Imaginary abstract vistas that evoke the depth and vastness of the Chinese landscape and the lingering traumas of China's past. Each collage includes an embedded photograph of the massive stone structures I climbed at the Great Wall.

 
JERUSALEM: Stones of Resonance
Abstract collages inspired by my strong connection to the City of Jerusalem incorporating my photos of ancient stones combined with stone-like images created with alcohol inks, solvents and resists

 
BERLIN: Stones of Resonance
Collages derived from photographs I took in Berlin, Germany at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and inspired by my indelible experience of the site and interpreted through five different series

 
PRAGUE: Stones of Resonance
Collages that combine the poetry of tilted headstones with alcohol ink infused papers, all within a surrounding grid of granite and slate images - my search to find a meaningful way to portray the stones of Prague's Old Jewish Cemetery

 
COLOR GRID RE-VISIONS
Abstract collages that combine free-flowing organic forms within geometric structures, recently reworked and re-visioned

 
MY LEFT KNEE
Recent knee surgery inspired these collages featuring repellent/fascinating images of my incision closed by surgical staples — I needed to create art to soften the trauma of a painful experience.

 
CAUTIONARY and other TALES
Mixed media collages that explore the blurry line between collecting and hoarding

 
RAINBOWORKS
A series of artworks in different media (alcohol ink on paper collage, mosaic, ceramic tile) composed using the colors of the spectrum in their set order: red orange yellow green blue indigo violet
