Lyone Fein-Bernbaum's Profile

About

I was a Professor of Comparative Religions for 18 years, but I have been an artist my entire life. My mother taught me how to sew, draw, paint, and she encouraged me to dream. Since coming down with Fibromyalgia (FMS), I have mostly been working with making jewelry, mobiles . . . . and in photography.

I love working with my hands. It is very therapeutic, both physically and emotionally. My favorite aesthetic challenges involve the question of balance: Balance between different colors, balance between different types of shapes in a piece, even balance between movement and stasis. The balance between illusion and reality is always the artist's primary challenge, I think.
