The T'Chiah Series was created during a time when my validity as an artist was being challenged. The images, all views that depict myself working as an artist, served me well by bolstering my self-confidence and allowing me to understand that those who assailed me were not important, nor their questions valid. The term T'Chiah is Hebrew for "rebirth".

The Separation Series was created shortly after the loss of a loved one. It was during a period of time when I felt that I could almost touch, almost see the person, but he remained just a little bit beyond reach and a little out of focus.
