I was raised in an artistic family in the former Yugoslavia, where I spent much of my childhood at my mother's ceramics studio, learning the secrets of the trade. My art education began in Belgrade nearly 20 years ago, where I attended secondary school for Design. I later studied photography in Prague and in 1993 moved to New York, learning at the Jewish Renaissance Center for Jewish Studies and studying Hebrew calligraphy with calligrapher Jay S. Greenspan.In 1997 I moved with my family to Krakow to help rebuild Jewish life in Poland while working for the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation. There, I later earned a Masters degree in Fine Art and Art Education, mastering the technique of linocut by the renowned Jerzy J edrysiak. My graphics and paintings have been published and exhibited internationally. I now live in New Jersey with my husband and two children.
