Short biography

I was born in Kfar Saba in 1948.  After my military service I studied Mathematics in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Bsc and MSc degrees) and then in the U.S. Computer Science (MSc and PhD) in UC Irvine. After years in the Computer Science field I have retired. I have been sketching all my life, and  in the last ten years have been dedicating my time to art (see below). In the years 2000-2003 I studies in the academy for geographic photography, in Tel Aviv, and a continuation year, and participated in the graduates exihibition plus selected works in Tel Hai Photography Museum. From 2003 to 2010 I studied in The Oranim College in Tivon, including participation in group exhibitions. Currently live in Haifa, and work in drawing, etching, painting and photography. Was a member of the Red House Art Gallery, (Hence: “The Red House”), Tel Aviv, until its closure in 2014.
