What or who inspired your interest in the arts?

Art was my default ever since I was a little girl. I was creative, I liked wondering, thinking and looking for things people left behind and turned them into art: a fisherman’s rope at Palmachim beach; large sheets of vinyl papers without the adhesive, left in a shed in an orange orchard; doors that were thrown away; etc. We had some art books at home and I loved flipping through them – reproductions of art from the Louvre, Impressionism, etc.

I loved going to art camps and after-school activities, and trying different craft techniques: copper etching, working with clay, cutting styrofoam with hot wire, painting, drawing. I went with my artistic aunt to a paper workshop and admired her incredible collection of markers that was brought from New York in the 70’s. It wasn’t about seeing art as much as it was a means of expression, and it triggered every inch of curiosity in me.
