I was recruited to the I.D.F. and served with the Marines, upon the "Miznak" destroyer. In Sinai war I was recruited again and finished my army service as A.B.C. officer. Being released from the army i worked as a senior sailor with the commercial fleet. The first few steps in my art was while forming the "Gate of images" in my home and teaching Art.
in 1972 i earned my BA in Art and Education and MA degree in Educational administration and supervision in Haifa University.
