I am an intuitive artist, painting my deep inner world. My childhood in Africa,
the natural beauty of wide open spaces and trees are a rich source of knowledge
in my art. I have created a magical garden filled with trees, flowers and birds
in our home in Motza Illit on the outskirts of Jerusalem and here I paint. I try
to create a feeling of peace and harmony within my work and to arouse awareness
to the beauty of nature, and the healing power of trees, flowers, the sea and the sky.
