About

Hello, I am an artist and illustrator based in North Texas. I love drawing diverse portraits in settings that tell a story, especially in nature and urban context. I am interested in the connection between people and the natural world and the creative ways they utilize to bring the wild back into their lives. My style is painterly, playful, vibrant, inspired by healthy life style, culture and arts.

I create online illustration courses on Skillshare. On YouTube I share art process videos, and short illustration tutorials. Art Prints of my work are available for purchase on Society6. Portfolio website here.

Originally from Israel, I graduated from Holon Institute of technology with a major in Industrial Design and a Bachelor of Science in Technology Education, and continued to study Fine Art for a couple of years. I’ve worked for a software development company and as a graphic designer. Later, after my son was born I fell in love with the amazing world of children’s books and I became an illustrator.

little me in preschool cowboy dance

Funny how things turned up. This is me in the red cowboy hat. My dad took this photo when I was in preschool, dancing in my cowboy costume with my friends at a Purim party. I still remember what the costume felt like and how it smelled. It came with a belt and a handgun that made a real loud Bang! Little did I know then that I will move to the US with my husband and two kids and end up living in Texas among real cowboys. My name is pronounced Yeefaht which means Beauty in Hebrew.
