"After retiring from a successful, 40-year career as an independent graphic designer, I didn't anticipate finding a pleasurable new challenge in watercolor paintings. But during the past 15 years, I have used my growing skills in this medium to recall scenes from my life in wartime and in peace and especially in portraying beloved family members and groups, past and present.
That said, it seems not to have kept me from also painting objects that intrigued me such as animals, birds, buildings and strangers I have met.
I am very pleased that a painting in which I tried to resurrect my 1937 Jewish Cub Scout friends, almost all of whom were murdered in German death camps, has recently found a home in Amsterdam's Jewish Historical Museum."
