Judaica, 1990-2013

I was brought up in a secular rather than religious Jewish household. Over the years Judaic commissions have presented the occasion for me to research the history of the Jews and Judaism. I have visited temples and synagogues around the world. I have also studied images of Judaic architecture and ritual and ceremonial objects. These have all provided the inspiration for my Judaic works.
