- Artist's Bio
I grew up in Rishon LeZion, Israel. I started painting at a very young age, Under the watchful eye of my Grandfather, Josef Spiegel, who was a painter and sculptor. Early on, he brought my works to his close friend and next door neighbour, Who was the head of the Israeli Artist Association Mr. Eliahu Adler. Mr. Adler inspected my early work, and in no uncertain terms, forbade my family to send me to any formal art school or any technical teaching, so that my style would develop naturally; and my artistic element must be allowed to realize and mature without any influence from any technical instruction. Mr. Adler was the highest authority, an accomplished artist himself, a teacher and mentor to many artists. I owe my unique style to his keen eye and judgement, and my family who allowed me to develop my artistic element and talent without interruption or interference. The women I paint are a homage to all Israeli women, who are equal to Israeli men in every way, including service in the Army. To this day, I paint women, as part of the four elements: Water, (Mermaids) Fire (Fire Walkers), Air (Angels), Earth (Tree/Nature Women). When I paint I remember my Grandfather Joseph with me– always patient and quiet , intent on his work, a self-taught artist. I use my artwork to show the many facets of Israeli Feminine Beauty. Remarkable women who empower and inspire me. Independent, strong, complex women; warrior women; Women of peace and love, family unity and strength.
