Activity Report for 2021-2022

mfpa-logo_edited.png

The past year has continued to be challenging in terms of the pandemic. However, while some of the planned events and activities were postponed or cancelled, I was still able to find opportunities and make quite a few other activities happen, in spite of the challenging situation.

From a professional standpoint, I’ve been painting in oils for over a year now and feeling like it has contributed much to my professional development. I’ve come up with a new solo exhibition based on my recent children’s book, “Hidden Door”, which has been hosted in 4 different spaces so far and still in demand for more shows. My children’s book itself, along with the previous two, have been selling very well across Israel.

I’ve held five solo exhibitions this year (in between lockdowns again), participated in over 10 group exhibitions (in-person and online), hosted a few lectures on Zoom, gave interviews to newspapers and won awards in art competitions, including the public award in the International Naive Art Biennale in Bulgaria.

On a personal level, my second son was born in late 2021! It’s been quite the journey to conceive and have him via surrogacy, but after three years of hard work and lots of ups and downs, he’s finally here with us.

To sum it up, it’s been a much better year than 2020, but still challenging and very difficult at times. Nevertheless, it’s definitely been a year of personal and professional growth, and it introduced quite a few opportunities despite the complex situation we currently live in.
