I am intensely moved by the fact that in our contemporary world, we are bombarded each day by information from competing media. My paintings are born out of a sense that in the midst of this world of information there is a calm eye to the storm. In my work, I choose different titles from newspapers and create my own imaginary narrative.
I use oil paint, combined with a collage of newspapers, titles, and photographs that I take randomly in my daily life. These headlines become the name of my paintings.
ARTIST STATEMENT – WOMEN’S PORTRAITS PAINTINGS
My recent series is a reflection that in today’s world, women have become increasingly more empowered and dominant in the media, and my art is intended to showcase these women in power. My work is inspired by the constant media that we are bombarded with each day, and it is these media headlines that I incorporate into my art and draw inspiration from to create my own narrative.

I was born in Tel-Aviv where I studied philosophy and was an art teacher. I immigrated to Toronto, studied at OCAD and graduated with an Honours degree. As a full-time artist, I showcase my work at various galleries and have had them published in a several art books.
