“I am a NYC based artist and writer. I’ve been a member of Pleiades Gallery for 15 years. I had solo and groups shows every year for ten years. My work is colorful Pop Art type works and darkly sarcastic portraits.
I took a sabbatical from painting to write a memoir called Mom is on the Roof about how losing my ability to speak helped me find my voice. My book shows how we need to love ourselves despite our hardships and perceived shortcomings.
I met Camille Zamora who told me Sing for Hope’s mission is to help people find their voice. I found this exciting because that is exactly what I want to do. I based one of my design options (I include three) specifically on this idea.
I wrote my book with the hope of helping others by telling them of my journey and I’d like to do the same by painting one of your pianos.
Thank you for this opportunity.”
