“My eyes see, at home, abroad, wherever, the subjects that become my paintings.  But the techniques that are employed to bring them to life vary with my passion for unique materials, be they hand made papers, shiny acrylic inks, glossy photos taken on New York sidewalks or printed off the computer.  Each surface beckons me to approach it with materials designed to enhance its own unique qualities.  Each painting, whether it stands alone or is part of a series, must resonate with my desire to make a work of art that is competent, compelling and uniquely mine.  The joy I find in the making of art, the education I bring to it, and the intensity with which I work, result in the colorful, multilayered acrylic and collage paintings presented in the pages of this website:  please enjoy!”  – Bernice Koff
