I am an artist whose work explores aspects of being female in contemporary society. My subjects include family and relationships, ceremony and ritual, memory and death.
My art often focuses on the female body with all its changes during pregnancy and motherhood, and the various stages of aging and entropy. I am interested in the surface of the human envelope, the failings of its structures as it ages, and our attempts to minimise these failings.
I also like to explore traditional texts, especially the Bible, in new ways, and to shine a light on family material from the Holocaust.
I studied art at a variety of institutions in London and California, and most recently at the Bezalel School of Art in Jerusalem. I have taught art to children for some years and for the last 17 years have acted as volunteer guide at the Israel Museum, Jerusalem (www.imj.org.il).
My oeuvre is very varied as I work in a wide variety of media: painting, ceramics and sculpture, video art and photography, print-making and installation pieces.
My art can be found in private collections on three continents, and in the Ben Uri Gallery (The London Jewish Museum of Art) UK, and in Israel, in the Jerusalem Print Workshop, the Ein Harod Museum of Art and Yad Vashem Museum collections.
I work from my studio in Jerusalem, Israel.
