What is your craft / art / creative endeavor?
I love to make illustrations, paintings, and tiny stuff,like tiny books or tiny prints… I also wrote and illustrated a children book.
How did you get started? Have you worked in other creative areas before the kind of work you’re doing now?
I finished my studies In Bezalel academy of art and design in 2008. I studied in Illustration Department, and finished it with excellence!! Yaaw!
Is there a story behind the name of your shop?
I feel that our life runs so fast specially with the all new technology that came in 20 last years , so it feels to me that we miss something, we miss the happiness of simple stuff, of simple beauty , or just a shunning days, in my illustrations I am trying to remind the naives feeling of being a child, a simple happiness………. I really wish that all the people would a bit more happier!
Do you work alone? With a team? Do you engage your family or friends in the work? What is your process? How do you ensure you get your work done yet still have a life?
I am working by myself, absolutely alone but with a lot of Music!
My life is my work (my art),I need it and I love it!
Usually I am waking up in the morning, looking at the sun putting music on and starting with a painting or illustration…..
in the evenings I am making a dinner and waiting to my boyfriend…. sometimes I do make myself a holidays and going to my friends or just shopping!
Where do you sell your work? Which venues are your favorites? Do you prefer selling online or in person? Do you attend shows or fairs? Is your work in a gallery or brick-and-mortar store?
right now i am included in Dona show Espai Cromàtic Gallery in Spain.
Do you have any favorite handmade shops or sellers?

What inspires and motivates you?
I have no routine in my creation process. I love that it’s spontaneous and free. Sometimes I think about content, but sometimes I just pick up one of my pencils and start drawing. And sometimes I discover a new technique and I do something with my hands.
and sometimes I just making a painting of a photography.
What do you wish I had asked you?
“What i love to do apart of art?”
I do love to sleep and drink tea with cookies. Even when I sleep – I dream about drinking tea with cookies.
