This art was informed by a true story of a group of 16 adults and one child who survived the Holocaust by living in the sewers in Eastern Europe. The little girl went into the sewers 24 months earlier wearing a green wool sweater made by her grandmother and she came out of the sewers wearing it 24 months later.
Artist StatementMy art works emphasize emotional marks and beautiful brilliant colored surfaces, rich in texture. They are created to promote positivity and healing.
