All with her personal touches. She focuses primarily on stained glass and her insights never stop. She is a true and devoted artist. With travels around New England for multi-site shows, she brings her best craftsmanship. Check out her works.

Pnina’s Wax

Medium: Mixed Media

The work is colorful and unique.  The process consists of crayons with heat added to make her creations come to life.

ISB Gallery

With a calendar chock full of exciting exhibits, this gallery is a must see.  Located in the heart of Providence, RI the floor space is well lit and laid out.  ISB is short for ‘Illustration Studies Building’ and is part of the Rhode Island School of Design.  The exhibitions vary and the crowd loves it!  With every visit, there is chatter amongst the viewers and deep conversations that stall folks to take in all the wonderful artwork.
