how did it start

My love for miniature have started from these two paintings. I bought them in Rajasthan, have no idea who the artist is. I wanted to buy many pictures, but they were not cheap.

so quiet

This is my favorite place in Israel — Judian Desert (midbar yehuda). It looks feminine, because of the soft curves of the hills and mountains. And it’s always so quiet. But although it’s only about one an a half hour drive from Tel Aviv, I visit there so rare… But then again, my grandma lives in a 15 minutes walking distance from me, and I visit her once a month. It’s because of that tricky path of habits and mechanical order of everyday actions, which is so hard to break sometimes.

Introduction

Good evening. Actually, I already have a livejournal, but it’s in Russian. Although Russians are everywhere it has not become an international language yet, so I decided to start another one in English. My English is not good enough, so I’m sorry in advance.

About myself: I was born in Minsk, where I went to art school. My best friend was Nadia, who went to a ballet school and now lives in Bulgaria. At the age of 14 I moved with my family to Israel. I took with me my dog Doris. In Israel I attended the Alon Art School. It was so boring that I couldn’t speak Hebrew and had no friends. I was happy to graduate. Then I spent 2 years in the army where I worked as a graphic designer in a strange place called Shifat, that encourage school kids to study Arabic. We were making computer games, internet sites and illustrated brochures. There served many smart and cool people, I am still keeping in touch with some of them. After the army I studied for 4 years in Bezalel, Art and Design Academy in Jerusalem. A cruel place to be, but it has a very good level of education. It taught me to cope with any kind of criticism. Now I work as a senior designer at BN Creative Branding Studio in Tel Aviv and an independent artist as well. I took a year vacation to travel in India and South-East Asia and had two personal exhibitions in Japan. I have a 2.8 year old kid, her name is Michelle.
