A few words about myself: being a native of a small country whose waist is seventeen kilometers wide in a certain area; and in seven to eight hours drive one can cross its length, I was amazed on my first tour abroad by the vastness and distances I've met with. I could have seen it on maps much earlier, that's true, but realizing it was a stunning experience. I visited Africa east and west and was enchanted by the landscapes, the wildlife, the rain forests, its diverse population; I've visited Europe and was awed and inspired by humanity's achievements, the richness of culture and tradition; the museums, the cathedrals, the architecture old versus modern. I've learned the meaning of what a masterpiece is, spending hours before huge incredibly beautiful paintings and sculpture; wondering how on earth they have managed to do it. The huge cities, the way of life the beautiful languages, the customs, it left its marks and is the cause no doubt to my own efforts and to what I'm trying to reach up to this very day. I do paint and write. Ive had five exhibitions, created more than 250 paintings and drawings. Ive written a collection of 62 short stories and four novels, in Hebrew and English.
