My career as a professional artist began with the publication of my cartoons on the popular Jewish website, Aish.com
. My cartoons have since appeared in international Jewish magazine Mishpacha
, where I now have a monthly column, Splash
, the Jewish Chronicle, and my work featured in the Jewish humour calendar for 2012 by author Marnie Winston Macauley, published by Andrews and Mcmeel. Most recently I provided cartoons for Rabbi Shimon Gruen's book, 'Get Along with Everyone: Especially Those You Find Most Challenging' (click here

I have illustrated a number of projects for the United Synagogue (view samples in the Illustration gallery
), most recently the new Early Years Siddur, released December 2013.
I have illustrated and designed many cards for the leading Jewish greeting card company, Cazenove Printers, and even designed napkins and finger puppet craft kits!
I work as a caricaturist at events and parties, and produce caricatures from photos for clients seeking a personalised gift. View samples of my caricatures on the Caricatures page
Eager to share my skills and enable others to express themselves through art, I am the Head of Art at the Beth Jacob Grammar School, Hendon, helping my students hone their artistic skills and knowledge and achieve top marks at GCSE and A-level. I also teach boys after school classes in my home from Year 4 upwards, providing a fun creative outlet for them. Previously I have taught ladies’ art classes too.
I periodically contributes articles to Aish.com which can be viewed by clicking the links below:
