Bio

Born in Israel. Lives and works in Karkur, Israel.

I come from fashion design backround, worked for many years in the design industry as a bags and accessory designer,  as well as a senior lecturer in Shenkar College for Design. 

For the past 15 years, I have returned to my childhood passion for visual arts and painting. In 2004 I studied for a period of a year at ‘Beit-Berl School of Art’ and have been engaged with art since, exhibiting and teaching art in private groups.
