This is WOOHOO WOOHOO!!! My interview with Judaica in the Spotlight was published on April 18, 2022. I am so honored and delighted to have been asked. The interview will give more insight into my background and the inspiration behind my personal exploration of how much I reveal about my Judaism.

Sometimes something wonderful happens just out of the blue. And, this was one of those sometimes. I was not aware of Judaica in the Spotlight's online magazine prior to being contacted. I spent time looking at the artists from all areas of disciplines that they were presenting and was completely impressed. Especially, I have admiration for the mission they have set forth.

The Interview

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.

In 2018, I converted to Judaism. How I arrived here is a long story. In short, I came to a point in my life where I needed grounding. You would think after being welcomed into Sephardic family, celebrating the holidays, and cooking along side the matriarch that I would have considered conversion earlier. After many years and I mean many, the exploration began where I finally found home in Judaism. This journey has influenced the artwork that I am currently creating which I will discuss later in the interview.
