About the Artist

I was born in Jerusalem, Israel on 1973. My father was a documentary film director and an Artist, and my mother was a school teacher, and later on a Yoga instructor. I’m a middle child in a family of three girls. In 1999 I got my bachelor degree in Business and Economics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Between the years 1999 to 2006 I worked in finance as a financial risk manager in Tel Aviv. On 2008 I opened my own ceramic art studio, where I produced original sculptures and pottery and taught ceramics to adults and children. Between the years 2013 to 2014 I studied graphic design and digital media in Cavim Institute of Design in Tel-Aviv. In the spring of 2015 I have relocated to California with my husband and three daughters. During my stay in California I discovered the Mixed Media Art and started creating collages. I have been selling my art since 2018 in the bay area and in Tel-Aviv. Galleries and shows: • JCO’S ART HAUS – Art Gallery Los Gatos, California • Under1000 – Art gallery Tel-Aviv • January 2018 – march 2018 “Overlap” – A Dual Exhibition at the JCC of Los Gatos, California.

Artist Statement

My art emerges from the interaction between my creative mind and the materials around me. It deals with ideas, shapes, forms, colors and compositions. I choose specific visual images, sometimes iconic, to represent each subject I address. The images repeat themselves forming the skeleton of my work. Its defined boundaries give me the confidence to create in a free, abstract way. My subject investigation is done through the various changes in the image and its encounters with other visuals, transforming the one-dimensional, tabloid image into a complex and profound work. The interaction and connection between all the elements create the final artwork that can be categorized as a contemporary art with a pop-art feel.
