Educated at Moscow’s School of Visual Art, I turned to hand-woven tapestries in the search of a fresh visual language and a distinct process I could call my own.

Resident of Michigan since 1989, I work as a studio artist, designing and weaving tapestries. From that time, I exhibited my work in the numerous shows in Michigan and as well nationally. I also participated in the special projects, such as “Inaugural Lady Liberty Project” for ACLU of Michigan (2006) Detroit, Memorial Tapestry (2003), Purim Flag for the JCC in Manhattan, NY (2002) and completed several commissions.

My work is soft, quiet and reflective. I am very much interested in mythology, especially Jewish mythology and traditions; because it is very vivid and reflects who I am.  I love to read and often it gives a starting impulse for the new work.

 

Artist’s Statement

 

When exploring the theme for my new tapestry, I produce numerous drawings to experiment and clarify the idea for the new work. I enjoy the energy and spontaneity of process of drawing and want to carry the same element of excitement in my tapestries.

    I am the 2016 Quilt and Fiber Art Festival chairperson for the LaConner Quilt and Textile Museum here in the Pacific Northwest.
    Our museum is trying to increase the presence of fiber artists entries into the show. As the show chairperson I hope that you will consider entering a piece or two in the show. You can find the call for entry on our website along with the categories and entry guidelines.
