I was born into a family of scientists in Ukraine. My artistic talent was nourished from an early age, and soon after graduating in 1982 from the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg-Russia, I moved to the bay city of Haifa in the north of Israel with my husband and newborn son.
Hhere, at the Mediterranean crossroads of cultural ideas and influences, I founded my studio. I works exclusively in oil on canvas.I exhibited internationally, for example at Art Expo in New York and Los Angeles. My work is in private collections in Israel, USA and Europe. In my earlier career, I also designed posters for the theater and illustrated numerous children books. Today I am working mainly on commissioned portraits, landscapes and figurative art.
