The ever-changing life of the land, in particular that of Israel, where I was born, and that of my present home in Northern California, inspires me. As an immigrant, I search for connection between the land and my internal landscape of memory. These landscapes, simultaneously intimate and vast, come together in my work.
Hope, loss, memory and the fleetingness of time are recurring themes in my work. I strive to create intimate spaces that speak of our emotional existence and this ephemeral journey that is life: to tell a story of fragility and strength, vulnerability and resilience.
