The Holocaust project was a nine-year involvement that began with genealogical research and an investigation into Jewish history. I was awarded a resident fellowship that allowed me to further explore this history. This led me to the experiences of children in the Holocaust and their struggle for survival. I began to focus only on these children and how they coped under the most adverse conditions. I received a fellowship from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts and The Puffin Foundation to continue this project creating a number of paintings, mixed media two-dimensional, and three- dimensional pieces. The work from this project was shown in Connecticut, New York City, Oneonta, New York, North Carolina, Michigan, New Jersey and Florida.
