Light, sky, water and trees are the main motives in my paintings. I have been painting since I can remember myself, I had never study painting. All my skills are a buy product of Auto didacticism and perseverance.
In my creation process I try to Converge myself into a Calm and Serenity State of mind. These strongly express in my final creation. The painting process brings me into meditative state and by this way I am able to pass those feelings to the viewer.
I choose to paint views because I love being surrounded with creation beauty. It’s there where I find my peace of mind. I constantly go out to observe, soak in the ambiance and colorfulness of nature. But when I translate those Experiences to the canvas. I creates different colors, from my point of view. I'm using warm colors, I love surrounding myself with exotic colors which gives me a comfort pleasant feeling. In addition to my strong passion for painting, I ask to transfer my special experiences to the viewer.
There is a significant meaning to light in my paintings, therefore I focus the light in the center attention in my work. There is a lot of optimism in my paintings and I wish to create a beautiful and peaceful world. I used colored pencils on my first paintings and over the past 5 years I'm painting with acrylic colors. I have a bachelor's degree in special education and literature from Oranim Academic College of Education, in Israel. I am also half way on my Master’s degree in Art and therapy.
