Hi, and thanks for stopping by! I'm Netta, and I have an interesting life story, so they say :-)
Until the age of 15 I ran quite a normal life; I was a friendly geek high school student who split her spare time between art and sports: during the day I was a medal-winning athlete and tennis player, and when it all went dark I would enjoy making handcrafts.
Sounds like the beginning of an ordinary story, right? just wait to hear the rest...
The ideas that come out of my paintings, which sometimes surprise people due to my physical disability, is that life is beautiful. My art combines precision, attention to detail and vibrant motives. I work primarily in acrylics and often employ bold colors in a way that captures the colorful, optimistic side of reality in a naïve-romantic-realistic manner.
Figures & Portraits
Landscapes & Nature
I've authored and illustrated three children's books published by the association of Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (books are currently available only in Hebrew):
Imagine that one day you get up in the morning and unable to move and feel your body.
No hands, no legs, paralyzed from the neck down.
What would you do?
I invite you to hear my story, live.
Newspaper articles, TV appearances & online publications - local to international, personal to professional. Since my spinal cord injury I've been trying to get my story out there as much as possible and (hopefully) convey my optimistic message to the world.
