Kara & Leslie Offers 10% Off one Item in October. Artist reception Oct 6 1-4 PM
The ability to create art in all its various forms has always been one of the greatest joys of my life. It is my great fortune to have this outlet to express my ideas, my reactions to the world around me and my emotional state of being. Many of my paintings, figural and abstract, are inspired by nature and the grandness, the romance, the beauty and mystery of our little blue dot in this vast universe. I was born and raised in New York City and Glen Cove, Long Island, where I attended the public schools and was fortunate to have gifted art, theater and literature teachers. I graduated from Hofstra University with a B.A., Columbia University with an M.A., and The Mount Sinai School of Medicine with an M.D. I am a practicing psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in New York City, and have been a resident of Greenwich Village, New York and Blairstown, New Jersey for more than thirty years.
I am very pleased to be represented by Gallery 23 in Blairstown, N.J.
