Yael studied fashion design and painting in Montreal in 1973. She later moved to Edmonton to raise her family and continue her studies in fine art. Painting and photography are her primary focus to date, though painting is her first love. In 2005 she moved to Victoria and made it her home. A growing interest in yoga, meditation and exploring the inner world informs her creative work. At this time in her life, Yael is seeking a direct expression of the relationship between the worlds seen and unseen, and the present works reflect her study. Her art reflects her life experiences and has evolved to become more and more simplified. Yael has also traveled widely including the deserts of Arizona, the volcanic islands of Hawaii, the white beaches of eastern Australia. Her travels have had a profound impact on her photography and painting.
