I have lived in the great cities of the world, London, Paris, New York and Jerusalem, not to seek better employment which I had had as a teacher of studio and art history at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, but rather to hear great music and see the fine arts and to meet people from all over this planet. One doesn't spend time in Paris, one gains time. Four years went by so fast. In 1959 I had just been graduated from college - by 1963 I was a mother of two children.
My Mother and Father, may they rest in peace, always helped me. May this site bring honor to their souls.
And then in 1967 I was awarded a Danforth Fellowship for Women to study for my master's degree in Fine Arts. I painted all the time. It was wonderful.
The next ten years culminated in my immigration to Israel with my new and youngest daughter.
We lived in a gorgeous desert town on the Ramon Crater. I painted distance, weather, seasons, wind, gazelles and friends.
After fifteen years I began to divide my year between the academic one in Mallorca and when the university recessed, home to Mitzpe Ramon. I wrote papers for the doctorate courses. Many paintings and drawings from those years, the sea and the pomegranates are in private collections . There were praised shows as well.
Settling in Jerusalem involves serving your fellow man. At a certain point in life that is where the fun is. And of course, the Kotel is open all night.
