Born and raised in South Africa, I attended the Art, ballet and drama school of Johannesburg. I have always dabbled and explored various arts and crafts, finding a special love for 3 dimensional artistic expression.
At 19 I immigrated alone to Israel. The desire to work with my hands, coupled with the need to find a practical way to support myself lead me to studying Dental Technology at Hadassah College of Technology. After qualifying, I worked in a dental laboratory for several years, but the yearning to return to art and self-expression was always there.
All through the years I experimented with various art forms: everything from pencil sketching, oil painting, origami, beading, decoupage, sewing, T-shirt decorating … I find pleasure and inspiration all around me.
Today I live in Rehovot with my wonderful husband, 3 children and 3 dogs. My days are filled with color and life… and that is the part of me you’ll see in the jewelry that I create.
