I am an intuitive artist and my daily experiences of life here in Israel and in Jerusalem inspire my work.
I have a very large base of ideas colors and designs which I absorbed growing up in Zimbabwe. The spiritual Matobo Hills and the San paintings are etched in my memory and my art. My intuitive use of color and form comes from the magnificent garden my mother created and her love of color and design, fabric and upolstery. My father's stock of colorful fabrics from all over the world excited me too.
I have lived in Jerusalem for 40 years and the light and color, architecture, people and what changes here everyday seeps into my work.
I like most to create in watercolor as the colors are so dreamlike and I love the feel of the different papers and how the water flows on the paper and how the different brushes react to the color and paper and with their strokes I am able to say what I want.
I create monotypes at the Jerusalem Print Workshop which is situated near the old city and the Jerusalem Print Workshop so going there weekly is a great experience for me.
My most recent very large exhibition was held at the Zaritsky Artists' House in Tel Aviv in November 2013 where I exhibited my monotypes, oils and watercolors and my series of Anxiety and Life and Death along with my series of flowers, ancient people, trees and sunsets. It was a marvellous exhibition.
I have exhibited in Museums and Galleries throughout the world: Europe, China, Japan, Russia, the USA, the UK, Africa and Israel in over 90 exhibitions.
My work is in museum and private collections including the Israel Museum, Tel Aviv Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum UK.
