Israel Illustrated

This is my illustrated travel journal of Israel.

At first, I drew the plants in my own backyard. Then came the wanderlust, and I began traveling the country to paint, usually with my good friend and fellow artist Lena Umansky.


We discovered the joy of Plein-Air painting, and every week we pick a place and go. 


Israel is a land of contradictions and immense diversity, all packed tightly inside a small patch of earth.

Our travels take us from ancient holy sites to bustling 21st-century cities, from our own home gardens to the wild desert, and always returning to the man-made landscapes, that are so typical to Israel.

Israel Illustrated is the name of my other website. It's where I live, write and draw - Check it out!
