I met a girl who painted with her mouth and decided to give it a try myself

On November 25th 1994, my life turned completely upside down. From a very active high school student and an athlete who loved making hand crafts, I was struck down with Transverse Myelitis, a rare syndrome that inflated my spinal cord and left me paralyzed from the shoulders down and ventilator dependent. After coming off the ventilator and while in rehabilitation, I met a girl who painted with my mouth and decided to give it a try myself. I started painting with water colors and later moved to acrylics, with which I paint today.

I work in a hi-tech company and I'm a mother

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and a Masters Degree and thesis in Business Administration and Information Systems. I work in a hi-tech company and I am a mother to Itay, a two-year old boy! In 2003, I was granted a scholarship by the Mouth or Foot Painting Artists Association and in 2012 wrote and illustrated a children’s book that was published by the association and widely sold in Israel.
