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.

    WOW, you have definately brought in the other side of Croatia…I have always seen the beautiful, clean, pristine, blue ocean, solid white buildings, blue roof tops of this amazing country….This is fantastic to see the other side, no matter how disarming….thanks for the share.
