Rovinj is the most beloved town in Istria, a top sight in Croatia, and one of its most romantic spots. Rovinj was originally an island that was not connected to the mainland until 1763 and it was under the rule of Venice from the 13th to 18th centuries.

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.
