I love painting the austere black cloaks of the clerics--the nuns and rabbis. On the other end of the spectrum, painting the fabulous robes of elaborate brocade, silks and satins worn by the bishops and priests in my expressionistic style also gives me great pleasure.

Vestments are freighted with symbolic meanings. I am trying to reach beneath the cloth of authority and piousness to the individual.
