In 2018 Ruth Fogelman, a poet living in Jerusalem, discovered my art work through a mutual friend of ours, also a poet. She asked me if I would be willing to illustrate a book of her poems.

I agreed, and the book, ‘Leaving The Garden’, was published in 2019. The emphasis in the collection of poems is on the woman’s voice; Ruth puts herself in the place of the Biblical characters that she writes about. Whilst reading the poems I also found myself empathising with the women, and this helped me to illustrate them

The following year I illustrated Ruth’s next poetry book, ‘What Color Are Your Dreams?’

I chose to draw digitally for all the illustrations. I used my large ipad and apple pencil, drawing with sharp, clean, expressive, lines.

Many of these illustrations from both books were exhibited, enlarged, in my Solo Exhibition in February/March 2020 at Hechal Shlomo Museum of Jewish art in Jerusalem.
