I was born in Israel and raised in the U.S. I studied in Jerusalem's Bezalel School of Art and Design and earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in art from New York's School of Visual Arts and Hunter College. I taught Art and Ceramics at the American International School from 1984 to 2014. I currently live in Upstate New York with my husband.
When living and working in Israel I was inspired to explore the controversial issue of fences, walls and borders. It was then that I began incorporating found objects and corroded metal fragments. My mixed media works form a sculpture of many voices. I draw inspiration from clay, its versatility, its texture and its amazing transformations.
