My mixed media series explore the mystery of creation by enabling nature's affect on my paint and media. Winter's freezing temperatures provide the chance to freeze paint, elicit frost crystals and create a unique kind of crackle in frozen polymer mediums. I've discovered that the surface of clayboards behaves a little like cold glass on a wintry night, providing (with my help) the right conditions for ice crystals to form delicate patterns and for acrylic media to freeze and splinter into organic crackles and snake skin designs.  Nature is a true collaborator designing my under-paintings and influencing my composition. My series "Frozen Fire" features frozen acrylic paint and polymers combined with torn banana, mango and mulberry fiber paper from Japan, Thailand and Nepal.

I was born in Israel to parents from Poland & Bulgaria and later raised in west suburban Boston. After attending Colgate University as an undergraduate , I spent some years in Ann Arbor where I received my MA in American Literature from the University of Michigan. I have lived in Santa Fe since 1994. Currently I am researching material for a book about accidental procedure and artistic inspiration.  I teach workshops in mixed media and career development in my studios in Santa Fe and Tubac, AZ where I own Alta Contemporary Art in the histori Il Presidito studios in old Tubac.
