I am a jewelry beading artist and hand-made
crafts artist, working from my studio in Ramat Yishay, Northern Israel.
The embrace of nature on the ever-green Mt.
Carmel as a child, my Dad's watercolor paintings and my Mom's colorful touch
everywhere in our home, were my first color insight.
My never tiring
fascination with books, enhanced my imagination and familiarized me with
ancient places, cultures and arts. Kings and Princes, Cleopatra and Indians
depicted in turquoise, earthy colors, gold and crimson.
Some 15 years
ago, all those influences matured into creative force unique to me. The
inspiration to incorporate glass, gem beads, wood & ceramic beads, threads
& ropes, metal elements & clay were like a dream come true.
also claims its place as a creative force. Incorporating Transparency &
Opaque, Light & Darkness, Flat & three-dimensional contributed to a
piece with depth / a multi layered story.
in his song "Anthem" says "everything has cracks, that's how the
light gets in". For me, this line is the essence of the Revealed VS Concealed
and the search by association as to the meaning of things.
searching my individual expression through learning and experimenting and my
creative world keeps evolving. A Blessing.
A few years
back, by accident, I found the joy of sharing my knowledge & experience
with other people. To turn them from bystanders to active participants in the
creative proccess was an intense experience. Finding their own voice, tastes,
strengths became a WIN WIN for me and them alike.
