Thanks for taking a look at my portfolio. I hope you'll enjoy my art.
I Was born in Israel. Graduated the Neri Bloomfield Academy of Design and Education in Haifa.
I am a winner of the Israel Museum Award for Illustration of a Children's Book, for the year 2000, and also an award winner of different design contests as well.
An illustration of mine has lately received an award from the wonderful Israeli online site, "Ha-Pinkas", that deals with culture for kids: http://ha-pinkas.co.il/?p=4184
I illustrated several children books and the covers of many books for adults.
I also illustrated for some very well-known Israeli magazines in Israel.
My illustrations for children were exhibited in the "Israel Museum" in Jerusalem, and also in "Cinematheque" Tel Aviv, in "Beit Ariela" the main public library in Tel Aviv, at "Jaffa Port Gallery", at "The Edge Gallery" in Naharia and in Kfar-Sava youth library and exedra.
Living several years in California opened my eyes to change my artistic vision and to look for new materials to work with.
Today I also create dark, dramatic, three-dimensional art pieces, assembling porcelain and clay sculpted pieces together with antique found objects, old jewelry and cloth as I am mostly interested in different images of women. These dark creations express the dark side of every one of us.
I exhibited some of my art work in the Israeli Opera at Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center, in Beit Hecht, Haifa, at the "Old Jaffa museum" and more.
I live with my loving husband and our four adorable children whom we raise together with great love.
