Creation is the magic of turning nothing into something. When I create, I contemplate and exist. And when I contemplate and exist, the world happens.

I work with ink, pencils, acrylic, watercolors, digital painting, and various digital and manual techniques, using different formats from sketchbooks, paper, canvas, wood, and various objects to wall murals, often incorporating text and writing.

For many years, I delved into myself and my inner worlds, using abstract and figurative imagery of landscapes, figures, and stories. After becoming a mother, I deepened my exploration of motherhood and my individual femininity, continuing to frame enigmatic narrative pieces that hint at something beyond. But in recent years, I find myself aspiring to connect and engage with the external world, creating in the public space to better understand the space and the women within it. I discover added value in collaborating with other female creators and artists. Perhaps it's precisely the fact that I have children that forces me to find my place and creativity in society. It's challenging, painful, and exposed, but public creation compels me to see the reality in which I exist with greater clarity. Perhaps, finally, I am born, and I can begin to live.


"Oh Mother!" solo exhibition at the Young Adults Center in Hadera - 2017 Curated by: Lilach Tziproni Series of works "Oh Mother!" mixed media - printing and acrylic on canvas, sewing on fabric, ink on paper.

The birth of a woman. A series of works that express the cyclical nature of the relationship between a woman and her womb. The womb as an expression of a space for contemplation and creation out of nothing. Contemplation on the creator as a bridge between worlds - like a singular leap from "nothing to something.

Project 'Aleph to Tav,' ink on cotton paper, 18x26 cm, 2016-2017. Illustrated letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The letters are drawn on a single grid, and the font structure is inspired by 'Frank Ruhl' font. It is revealed through the illustration of the elements/objects that create the letter itself, or what surrounds it. The elements that make up the letter are sometimes related to the letter itself, its sound, and sometimes to its shape.

29X3.9 meters Mural, Acrylic Paints and Mosaic, Hadera Israel 2017

The presence of women in the first two decades in city of Hadera, and throughout the years up to this day, evokes appreciation and inspiration. As artists and women ourselves, we aimed to bring women and their contribution to the public awareness and to create a safe public space for women and girls. We firmly believe that the more women are represented, the stronger the sense of security and protection in the space will become. 

The prevailing tendency is to highlight men and their actions in the historical narrative. Women are pushed out of collective memory, and their actions are forgotten. The project's intention is to tell the story of local heroines, then and now, to empower and inspire women and girls who navigate the space and to enlighten the wider public.

The Hadera art community has chosen 21 women from its inception to the present day. These are remarkable women in their fields, women who have worked or are working for the community and the city, Local Heroines.
