It has been five years since my surgery, radiation therapy and -- I hope -- cure. In that time, I have made dramatic strides in my artwork.

Translucent/Jerusalem Studio and Six Bottles are from my "post-cancer" artwork. These compositions of bottles and jars; with their intriguing shapes, show how light transfuses the glass, creating a "presence" in these vessels.

Art helped me get through the trauma of having cancer. My art always demanded concentration and dedication, leading me out of myself and into a realm of inspiration and creativity. I didn't realize how my art helped me transcend anxiety and despair. It energized and excited me in a period that mitigated against emotions.
