I have been drawing from a very young age. I was born in Israel and grew up in California, where I took many art classes and doodled endlessly on office stationery my father brought home. I was a shy child, and art always helped me connect with people. My parents supported and encouraged my passion for art, allowing me to attend the Rhode Island School of Design where I majored in printmaking. I drew caricatures on the side to pay my rent while at school. Some of my early caricature experience included RISD student sales, drawing kids at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and drawing families at the Big Top Flea Market and Roger Williams Park Carousel. One day, a parent asked me to draw at her daughter's birthday party. Since that first gig 30 years ago, I’ve enjoyed and learned from every event I’ve done, and made thousands of people smile.
I truly enjoy drawing faces, and it will never get boring because each face is unique. I love being the focal point of the party, using my gift of drawing to entertain, amaze and inspire. Knowing the drawings will be taken home and enjoyed by family members is very fulfilling to me. After all, what is more beautiful to someone than a person or pet they love? Even if my artwork never hangs in a museum or gallery, I will be satisfied knowing my drawings are in thousands of homes being enjoyed daily.
To show each person that they are unique, valuable and beautiful just as they are. I strive to bring out everyone’s true beauty in my portraits. My goal is to enhance every gathering and event by providing entertainment and unforgettable party favors.
