Some things about me .
I was born in the Netherlands and after WW2 went to Israel . I'm a widow , have 2 married sons , 5 grandchildren and 1 great-grandson .
For seventeen years I lived near the Negev desert and am still influenced by the landscape , even after living more than 40 years in the center near the sea . The wide spaces , the colors and the contrasts , they all have a part in the work I do .
I work from my fantasy with an idea in my head which comes from an association or a dream .The works are abstract-minimalistic in order to capture the essence , without the 'Frills' , and leave it to the onlooker to feel the meaning .No wonder Mark Rothko is one of my admired artists .
Aside of painting I photograph also , wherein I try to catch the "Drama" in the picture .
I believe Art to be a tool to bring people together , to bring some Happiness and Joy !
For myself it is a part of my life , a must , just like eating and drinking .
Through Art I can express my Feelings and Hopes for a better World !
