About the Artist

I am a painter working in oil and watercolor. I am inspired to paint by the beauty I see around me: in people and street scenes, landscapes and flowers. I am also a medical doctor who practiced family medicine for many years. I have been influenced by many fine artists and have studied with Eric Weigardt, Arnie Westerman, Bev Jozwiak and Craig Srebnik. I am involved in ORA:Northwest Jewish Artists and Watercolor Society of Oregon. I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband.

In my paintings, I hope to immerse the viewer in the soulful essence of the subject.
