"Through teaching, I am concerned with the ways in which the contemporary painter considers, believes or understands that knowledge of methods and materials is relevant to the creative process."

"This MA program was both challenging and rewarding. With constant support from the department's staff, it was an inspiring environment that helped foster a deeper interest in, and understanding of, complex issues in modern Jewish history."
