I was born in Capetown, South Africa, a city of diverse traditions and a rich and diverse culture that is a collage of vivid contrasts. When I was eighteen, my family moved to Israel. At Haifa University I studied Creative Arts and Painting. Here my love of color, nature, and a keen interest in watching people celebrating the beauty of life became a dominant theme in my art. After finishing my degree, I enjoyed traveling, observing various cultures, and mingling with the locals as they went about their everyday lives.
