I was born in BudaPest, Hungary but by the time I was seven years old we had moved to Israel, Canada, and finally Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A. In Detroit I studied at Monteith College of Wayne State University....majoring in social science but with several courses in art and English literature. A bit before graduating, I moved to Israel to live on a kibbutz in the northern negev. In Israel I studied art at the Beer Sheba Visual Arts Center and design at Vital, the Tel Aviv School of Design. I still live on an Israeli kibbutz.
I work in several mediums. My emphasis is on painting and my works are semi-abstract. The subjects can be called mindscapes - landscapes of my mind - resembling things I've seen, dreamt, and imagined. I think of wheatfields and the open skies of the Israeli negev; I think of women, earth mothers, gaia...they become my fields.
I've participated in several group and solo exhibits and have received art awards and grants.
I would love to receive comments and critiques of my work. Some of my work is for sale and I would consider doing commissioned work.
