Marlene Dietrich was a fashion icon to the top designers as well as a screen icon that later stars would follow. She once said, “I dress for myself. Not for the image, not for the public, not for the fashion, not for men.”

Marlene. Looking Down.

Marlene. Looking Up.

Marlene. Looking at You.

I grew up in Eastern Europe and in Israel. As a child, I was drawn to the reproductions of the great Masters that were used on postage stamps. I collected these and knew from an early age that I wanted to paint. I wrote songs, constructed collages and painted. Via these media, i was able to reflect my view of life, my vision and the colours of my perspective. While I had no set ideas of what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wanted it to be something where I could express myself via creativity.
