“Fictionalised autobiography with a tragic sense of humour”
Life is an intersection too full of tangents for straight lines. Born in London , 1968, to a mixed cultural heritage of the Jewish diaspora , Moroccan , Eastern European, Pagan Scottish and English. I grew up in various countries and didn’t go to school much . made it up with going to university a lot . I began earning my living as a traditional stonecarver then animator, then teacher then community artist and creative project manager .I’m now settled in Cornwall where, with itchy feet, climbing ladders and digging holes , I have remained since 2009.
This website includes work made for different contexts in different materials of stone, film, drawing, print and in addition a blog/ journal.The portfolio does not sit comfortably within Eurocentric fine art or craft genres and neither do I. I continue in the footsteps of the diaspora a lineage that interweaves diverse cultural aesthetic influences of fine art , craft , comics and religious iconography .
