New York, NY; Putney, VT; Portland, OR

I was born in Jerusalem, Israel and I moved to New York City when I was two years old, which is where my family still lives. I grew up in a multi-cultural household, my mother is from Switzerland while my father is from Morocco. From a young age I enjoyed watching my mother paint while I sat beside her, attempting to copy her motions. I was first able to fully develop my passion for the arts at The Putney School, a boarding high school located in southern Vermont. There I was able to explore more complex mediums such as printmaking and darkroom photography. I have always had a passion for art and I am constantly looking for new mediums to explore. This online portfolio is a place to show and keep my artwork.
