From an early age I began journaling and painting my life. The words in my journals became poetry. Now I partner the images in my paintings with my poems. I scratch and emboss the words into the paint. My poems are not meant to describe my images rather enhance them. My verses add to the concept of the work. Ideally they are meant to be listened to while viewing the painting. I am a painter who happens to write poetry.
I am a member of Kibbutz Ein Dor on the gentle slopes of Mt. Tabor in the lower Galilee.

In 1980 my husband, Michael and I immigrated to Israel with group of people called a ‘garin’. We were ‘Garin Ein Dor’ who came to live on Kibbutz Ein Dor at the foot of Mt. Tabor. Here we have raised two bright and beautiful daughters. I have exhibited in Detroit, New York and Tel Aviv and different kibbutzim. Recently I exhibited my art work at the Amiad Center in Old Jaffa, Tel Aviv. On August 2, 2015 I am opening a solo exhibition at the W Tower, Tel Aviv, Israel.

In 1982 the kibbutz divided an old chicken coop into studios for the resident artists, artisans and photographers. The kibbutz renamed the building the Artists Chicken Coop. There among the cows, horses and chickens is my studio. I am fortunate to be painting there for over 30 years.
Since I came to Kibbutz Ein Dor I have taught art and painting. From the children in the kindergarten to the centurions in the nursing home I have contributed to the cultural life of the kibbutz not only by teaching but by painting the scenery for countless holidays and murals all over the community.

I love the serenity of the Jezreel valley where we live in peace and harmony with our Arab neighbors. I have taught groups of Arab and Jewish children ages 7 through 11, from surrounding villages, art and painting. It has been a lesson for all of us in culture and humanity.
Presently I teach privately in my studio. I emphasize technique, understanding the medium, self expression and creativity.
