In 2009 I received a Lifetime Arts Achievement Award from Congregation Ner Tamid, the Tucson Jewish Arts Alliance and the Tucson Jewish Community Center at a dinner and celebration for over 40 years of my work. Here are a few images of the work I have done for synagogues, galleries, museums, and private collectors in the US, Israel, Canada, and Mexico. A CD that was presented at the dinner is available.
In 1978, I was designated an Accredited Synagogue Artist and Lecturer in Judaic Art and Symbolism by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. In 2004 I had an extensive retrospective of 36 years of Judaica work. Looking back over these many productive years brings back a myriad of memories.
For me, Sacred Artwork always involves a trust that I will embody the intent of prayer and of emunah (faith) in the piece. Whether for individual or congregational use, I try to bring into each work my own act of worship and invocation, as well as an understanding of its role in the lives of those who will use it. I involve those who will use the piece in its creation whenever possible.

Creating Sacred Art is a Sacred Trust.
