EDUCATION
1985-1986   BFA. Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA. USA

1982-1984   Michaelis School of Art, University of Cape Town, South Africa

1979-1981   B.Des. Shenkar College of Fashion and Textile Technology, Tel Aviv, Israel

                    Studied Textile Design with a focus on designing fabric surface (print, embroidery etc.) and the development                                          of textile products for a wide variety of applications and fields, from fashion and interiors to art.

                    The integrative and fundamentally interdisciplinary nature of textile design is expressed in the close link                                                   between experimental creative ability, visual and material research and technological knowledge and skill.
