Sometimes, in the mornings I feel that I live in a dream. Once, in another life, I did not even dare to dream. I became 'practical' very quickly in order to survive.
I was born in Uruguay in January 1971 and at the age of two I immigrated with my parents to Israel. I grew up in a strict home. Over time I simply gave up and even made some huge steps in the opposite direction. I completed 2 university degrees. I served 5 years in the army. I married and had two daughters. I worked for high-tech companies and architectural firms. When I finally dared to look inside, the change began. Around the age of 40 I turned back to paint. I found myself excited and radiating when I was talking to people about my art. This time I did not give up. I chose to part almost completely from the life I knew and fulfill my dream of a long time ago, to paint.
The beginning was challenging. I fought for my identity as a painter. I didn’t let any obstacle stand up in my way.
Today, the ability to inspire someone else through my art, to feel excitement and bring joyful colors to their home and heart (literally) gives me great happiness and satisfaction. Looking back, I suppose that the desire to be seen and understood as I am had a great influence on my way.
I love to paint women figures within different scenes. Most of the women are a reflection of myself that depict scenes from my life that led me to where I am today. They embody my struggle to accept my own independence as a woman, as an artist, without any apologies or doubts.
I have participated in a number of important exhibitions worldwide including New York, Miami, San Francisco, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Germany, Paris, Holland, Australia, Monaco and Israel. I also participated in charity auctions and fundraising events as Christie’s in aid of ADETEC-COEUR, Israeli fund raising in aid of Aids, Art sale-Donation for Israeli hospital etc.
My last interview was to I24News in Paris for the international women day.
My great vision is to touch people's heart with my art and my story. Everything that I create is a reflection of myself and my long road of knowing and learning more about who we really are
