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.
When you travel as a backpacker, you know that buying something means less places to travel, worse hostel, and also place and weight in your luggage. So I’ve decided «I can draw miniatures for myself»…

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.

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
