My paintings are representations of man-made environments in a world designed by a higher power. Just as G-d created us in Its own image, so too I seek to be a filter to translate the architecture and people around me into my own scenarios, to unify that which is seemingly broken.Using fast drying mediums including acrylic and ink, I create active compositions utilizing gestural line to evoke life, motion, vibrancy and character in both large forms and miniscule details.
