"I have been teaching art and graphics on a volunteer basis and doing graphics for the Gabriella Charter School here in L.A. (Echo Park) for the past year. The Gabriella Axelrad Foundation was started by Liza Bercovici when her daughter was tragically killed in a car accident. She loved to dance, so Liza created a dance school in her honor. With the after-school dance program, she brought dance to hundreds of inner-city kids. From this successful program, she started the charter school. Each day, the kids dance. For those who have very little, it is amazing for them to participate in art every day. Working with them has been really rewarding for me, it has created a direct connection between my studio and the kids in my neighborhood."
