Please click on the image below to get to my Permanent Gallery at the Solo Exhibition group. There you can get virtual snacks and drinks, view some of my artworks and follow some discussions over methods and ideas behind the images – and, of course, leave your own comments or questions, too:
IMPORTANT: If you like any T-shirt design or wish to buy any image as a card, but would like some changes made, just b-mail me… I may not agree to EVERYTHING, but adding or removing text and reducing size of images is possible. I can also try to turn YOUR OWN ideas into a card or a T-shirt design…
Now about me:
I was born in Israel and lived there most of my life, till I moved to Finland, in 1996. In 2002 I immigrated again, this time to Holland, where I have been living ever since.
I studied lots of things. Guess studying is one of my main hobbies; LEARNING is definitely what life is all about for me, anyway (mmm… besides self-expression, trying to make some difference, have some fun…). This school of life is not an easy one, though – as many of you would probably agree. I had my downs, lots of them, sometimes very deep and desperate ones. I think I’ve learned a lot. I hope you can see it all in my art. One of the things I am still learning is how to look positively at life. Wish to get an A+ on this one, someday…
I studied Psychology (BA), library studies, journalism, applied graphic arts, computer programming… and well, the necessary (and difficult) languages: Finnish and Dutch. Lately I got a Masters degree (CUM LAUDE!;-) in “Hebrew Language and Culture” (University of Amsterdam) . All this tudying has taken care of my left brain hemisphere, while my art has kept my right hemisphere happy. I have been drawing most of my life, writing every now and then and since I joined RedBubble I am much into digital experimentation and painting.
Concerning my drawings: I had 3 solo exhibitions in Israel (1979, 1984, 1985) and 2 in Finland (1998, 2000) and participated in group exhibitions in both lands, as well as in Stockholm, Sweden (2002).
Started photographing in 2005 with an old second-hand 3 megapixel Canon camera and moved to Canon PowerShot S70 at the end of that year. Started taking photography more seriously in 2007, when I got a Canon PowerShot S5 IS. In 2009 I got a Canon PowerShot SX1 IS for my birthday, which is a welcome upgrade of sorts, though it lost the possibility of added lenses and filters the other one had.
I like taking photos of just anything: from macro to landscape, from animals to urban sites. I am interested in beauty, but I find it also in imperfections, not just in the breathtaking colors and shapes of what is commonly agreed on as beautiful.
