To paint is my way of analysing and understanding the world. My themes are always derived from everyday experiences and impressions. In my paintings I explore topics like movement, energy, contrast and the mystery of emotions. I am interested in how they interconnect into body language as the true expression of the individual.

Holocaust Memories Book Cover

Date : September 27, 2018

As my maternity leave comes to a close, it is a great pleasure to announce my collaboration with Claudia Moscovici, author, art historian and critic, and a friend.

The theme of Claudia’s upcoming book Holocaust Memories (Rowman & Littlefield Publishing, 2019) is one that’s very close to my heart and it’s an honour to have my painting Undercurrents featured as a cover image. If my small contribution to this long awaited book helps reach its important goals, then I’ve come one step closer to making the world a better place. The Foreword is written by Rabbi Joseph Polak, Author of ‘After the Holocaust the Bells Still Ring’, Winner of the 2015 National Jewish Book Award, who says: The screen that portrays the horrors of the twentieth Century is fading more rapidly than its audience can bear. Claudia Moscovici’s book will go far to help keep it lit longer.’

I’d like to leave you with Claudia’s wise words: To preserve the memory of the Holocaust—or of any historical disaster—well beyond the lifespan of its victims and their families, one needs to keep those memories alive for present and future generations around the world.
