Artist’s Statement: I paint city scenes mostly. When I am in the process, I visualize how I want the picture to look, no matter if I need to use medium in an unusual manner to accomplish that. I am a very visual person and have a strong need to express myself through art.

Artist’s Statement: In my painting, the top word reads, “bereishit,” - “In the beginning.” It is the very first word in the Torah. The first three letters spell “bara” – “created.” The first and last two letters spell “bayit” – “home.” And the second, third and fourth letters spell “rosh” – “head,” which is an allusion to G‑d. Thus, from a single word we can learn that G‑d created the world as a dwelling place for Himself.

The second line in my painting reads, “avara kedavra,” which translates as, “I will create as I speak.” Indeed, G‑d created the world through 10 utterances.

Creative works exploring life and Judaism composed by a spectrum of Jewish artists.

"The primary talent of an artist is his ability to step away from the externalities of the thing and, disregarding its outer form, gaze into its innerness and perceive its essence, and to be able to convey this in his painting.This is how an artist can serve his Creator." — The Rebbe
