Tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.  

I grew up in sunny Los Angeles and seeking a more creative environment moved to Israel in 2014. I have lived in the Galil, Judean Hills, Jordan Valley and now resided with my family in Ma’ale Adumim.  I run my own business, which includes, Graphic Design, Branding, print and Judaica art.

What inspired you to become an artist?

I am a creative person by nature and I enjoy designing art.

What is your specialty?

Minimalist Judaica art focusing on family and being a family brand.

How and where do you work?

I work from home.

What is the most indispensable item in your studio?

My computer of course!

Where do you take your inspiration? Are you pursuing any themes?

From the beauty of Eretz Yisrael, Jewish holidays, and everything relating to the Jewish lifecycle.

What projects are you currently working on?

An abstract Judaica Pattern Art Collection with quotes.

What is your favourite item in your current collection?

The Minimalist Map of Israel in blue.

How do you know when a piece is finished?

When I start tinkering with it too much.

Do you do bespoke work?

Yes, I’m glad you asked! I am currently available for commissioned art based on personal interests and desires.

What was the first artwork you ever sold?

When I was 12 years old, I sold my first piece of simple art for one-hundred-dollars!

Which project have you enjoyed working on the most so far?

I was commissioned to create a nursery room Poster Set with the Shema, Hamalach HaGoal and the Modeh Ani and that was really fun to create.

What do you want to achieve with your work and what are your wishes for the future?

I wish to create a line of Post-Modern Pieces that express the human experience of the contemporary Jew living in Israel. I hope to begin to design modern Ketubot, Custom Wedding gifts and Birkat Habayit and share the Joy of Judaica to the whole family.
