Art is my passion. I have always been interested in the common features of composition, color, line, rhythm, dynamic pattern, contrast, emotion and movement.
Art is my way of expressing myself and interacting with my surroundings. Working from model allows me to relate to another human being, to look and to explore within for a reason and justification.
I like to sculpt in clay because the material is soft and flexible and, since my work is very intuitive, clay allows me to work quickly and impulsively, which suits my nature.
I was born in Israel and came to the U.S. 20 years ago. My work has been exhibited in galleries and museum in Israel, Florida, New York and Romania and can be found in private collections.
