Education: B.F.A Costume and Set design, Tel Aviv University 1977

Multidisciplinary artist; Painter, Sculptor, Designer

Between 1977 and 1996 I lived and worked both in the USA and Israel and worked in theater and TV production. In 1996 I decided to devote my creative energy mainly to fine art and I established an art studio where I work and teach art classes.

In my art I incorporate my experience in the theater with my observation of life. I am interested in the dynamics between humans. I create characters, atmosphere and pose of people as actors in life.

As a set designer my landscape paintings incorporates elements of nature that I manipulate to form and create new dramatic scenery.

My sculptures combine the human figure and elements of winged creatures which create a story or an idea.

In my quest to express drama in my art I use continuous lines, colors, shapes, texture, illusions and perspective.
