Artist page


I am a visual artist currently residing in Tel Aviv, Israel.

I've always connected with images that at first glance are "pictures" of an aesthetic reality, but when you understand that it's a representation of a weird dream.

Very often, I draw people or creatures that are aware that they are a mirage and so I try to create a tension between the viewer and the drawn eyes. My characters look directly at the viewer or are caught in a frozen act (they fall, or turn into particles...). The play between real and surreal is important to me.

Moreover, as a female creator, I tell stories from a distinctly female perspective. I create feminine pictures that are modern, dreamy and soft.

Color is always one of my tools for creating atmosphere. It always helps to set the tone and the style, to focus composition and simply to add beauty to the illustrations.
