Me

 

I was born and raised in a village in southern Denmark, and immigrated to Israel following my marriage. I studied glass and ceramic design in the Bezalel Academy for Fine Arts in Jerusalem, and specialized in glass casting and blowing with various glass masters in the Seattle area. Since 2002 I have been teaching glass design at the Bezal'el Academy alongside working in my private studio situated in the Ella Valley. My works were exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions in Israel, Europe, USA and Africa, awarding me some prestigious prizes.

I believe in using beauty as a means of expression. Even hard things can be conveyed in a graceful manner. The artist has that choice.
