I was born (1950) and raised in Tel-Aviv Israel.
I am a member of the Israel Association of Painters and Sculptors.
I am a graduate of the Institute of Art in Bat Yam Israel, and among my teachers were Abba Fenichel, Eliyahu Gat and Jacob Epstein.
I continued by studying at Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Nachum Inbar's workshop and expanded my knowledge at the art studios of Moshe Peleg, Eran Webber and Alexander Cherkov.
I was the head of the Graphics Department at the Pedagogical Center in Tel Aviv for 18 years and was also involved in the planning and conducting didactic exhibitions as well as advising and guiding teachers.
I began my artistic journey with painting and discovered my passion for sculpting over a decade ago. My sculptures present the full circle of life, demonstrating childhood to the elderly stages of life.
My creations begin with a lump of clay that is slowly shaped until the sculpture comes to life between my hands.
The inspiration for my sculptures comes from my surroundings, family members, and the environment in my community.
My sculptures have been displayed in solo and group exhibitions in Israel and abroad, while some have also been purchased by art lovers.
