Artist’s Statement

née: Jerusalem, 1967

Until now, my work has depicted mainly landscapes. I love nature and open spaces, and draw a lot of trees, earth and sky. I use a variety of materials: oil, tempura, acrylic, water and pastel. I also work with charcoal and pencil. Charcoal and pastel are among my favorite mediums because they let me come into direct contact with the materials. I love to be familiar with the various mediums, to know how they were produced and from time to time to prepare them myself.  I produce the charcoal from branches. Among the pigments I use, there are pigments that I prepared from earth. I stretch the cloth on the frame and prepare the primary color.  

Recently, I’ve set new goals for myself: doing more sketching and painting of inanimate subjects in nature, doing portraits and participating in modern trends that accentuate emotional and intellectual expression.

While sketching and painting, I reach another dimension and experience something spiritual. This brings me closer to myself, as the work connects me with my true being. When I work, I feel calm, tranquility and elevation to a different realm, a realm beyond time and place. It’s an emotional time when I meet my inner self, the world and its Creator.
