Born in Southern Africa (Swaziland) in 1961. Lives and works in Kfar Yona, Israel.

Holds a BFA in Cinema and Television (1987), and an MFA in Theater and Lighting Design (1994), both from Tel Aviv University. Recipient of the America-Israel Cultural Foundation prize. In recent years she studied painting and sculpture in private workshops and courses, including Japanese Sumi-e ink painting, and classes with artist Yadid Rubin and artist/curator Revital Ben-Asher Peretz. 
Engages mainly in drawing and painting in ink and mixed technique on paper, in varying sizes, as well as drawing-based video art. In her work, abstract black ink landscapes seep through the fibers of delicate, fragile paper. The stains permeate the tissue, bleeding through to the other side, taking on a life of their own, delineating dynamic and dramatic storms or alternatively subtle vibrations of nature and the minutest whispers of existence. Juxtaposed over these monochromatic backdrops inspired by Japanese and Chinese traditions are fragments of images, creatures or objects distilled from her collected images, whether current or born from the physical and emotional landscapes of her childhood.
Her works explore socio-political themes alongside more personal motifs. They address the interrelations between humans and their connection with and affect upon nature, while examining how collective identities and sensibilities are created and interwoven.
Has participated in various solo and group shows in Israel. Her works are included in private collections in Israel and abroad.
