Born in 1979 in Israel, I’m is a graduate of Shenkar College of Design (2005).
Co-winner of the Sydney Taylor Honor Book Award, 2009.
Since graduation I have been contributing illustrations to most leading Israeli newspapers on regular basis. I also illustrate for magazines, advertisements, and more. I particularly enjoys illustrating for children and I’m now working on three new picture books.
I am represented worldwide by Plum Pudding Illustration, UK.
