I was born in Israel in the Negev desert area but grew up in Montevideo surrounded by the sounds and scents of the Rio de la Plata and the colourful folklore of Uruguay.
In my childhood I began my visual arts studies using drawing board and ink and studied painting under the guidance of Clever Lara. I was also influenced by Nelly Halty's distinctive, bright, adventurous style.
Her instruction in traditional oil painting was invaluable for me.
I studied Graphic Design at Ort University. After moving to Israel, I continued my studies at the Academy of Eran Borochov in Tel Aviv, where I benefited from his extensive technical knowledge and pioneering approach.
I had the great experience of living in Kibbutz Naan, where I worked under the guidance of Raheli Ben-Avraham at her ceramic studio, creating traditional Jewish objects.
Later on I lived in Miami, where I came into contact with the artist Antonietta Dorta.
During the following ten years I worked as a graphic designer in major design studios in Israel as well as in advertising agencies, designing and producing a wide range of creative publicity material.
I worked in London, where I lived for six years, infected by the excitement of the contemporary art scene. There, I continued to develop my skills, pursuing studies in screen printing, painting, drawing and mixed media at Central St Martins College of Art.
From the youngest age I admired Frida Kahlo’s art - and I have always loved the work of Henri Matisse, whose vivid use of colour is a source of inspiration to me.
Art is my passion. I enjoy exploring a variety of different techniques, inspired by the intensity and vibrancy of colour and texture,
My art is a reflection of the outside world and the internal self.
