Artist Statement

I was born and raised in Kibbutz Ma'agan Michael, Israel.
 I own a studio in the art center "Jerusalem House of Quality", located in a historical,
 picturesque building overlooking the enchanting view of the Jerusalem old city walls.

For me art and creation are a way of life that mirrors my own personality and character.
My great passions in life are beauty, color and traveling.
 Although I don't travel as much as I like, my fantasies manifest themselves through my work.

My bags and necklaces create a world where color, playfulness and joy interplay in an aesthetic that is all about expressing beauty.
