I am preoccupied with the distinctive mannerisms and features of people as they go about their daily lives. So much is expressed in the way a scarf is worn, or the way a foot is put forward when stepping onto or off of a curb. As a girl I wrote about these people in my journals. Now I use paper and scissors to recreate the people I encounter in my daily life. I use hand made and found papers to create my images.


The Seder is a user friendly Haggadah for beginners as well as anyone looking to honor Passover and eat before ten at night. Anyone, from the fidgety six-year-old who may never have attended a Seder to the 90-year-old who was a bar mitzvah long ago, will enjoy this short and sweet interpretation of the Exodus from Egypt.
