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.
