At the age of 5 in 1948 Jerusalem where I lived was occupied. I grew up in a wounded and divided city. My father was wounded physically and I was wounded sitting next to him at the hospital when his leg was amputated . I was wounded confused and rebellious.
At the age of 17 I took a scholarship from the french consulate to go and study in Paris.
My aim was to heal my wounds.
In Paris I learned to express my wounds and my confusion on canvas.
I worked at my art consistently for twenty years, during which time I married and had three children.
"I then responded to my yearning to explore the spiritual and esoteric dimensions of life which, in turn, led me to experience diverse approaches to healing and consequently to my training as a holistic counselor."
