Spread 0118 – Lessons

January 2013 

Vintage and personal papers, napkin transfers, acrylic paint, gesso and matte medium.

I have recently started private study with Orly Avineri. A few artist friends asked “Why?” My answer. I crave to be challenged, I yearn to go farther. I want my art to be more authentically me. Actually I am learning so very much more about myself.

    Anybody who knows Orly would not have to ask you why you would want to study with her. Enjoy the experience!
