Yoav & Maggie
We both share a passion for using nature as our creative medium while working with our hands. Yoav excels in collecting wood and branches from fallen trees, utilizing knives, axes, and chisels to craft his stunning artworks. On the other hand, I gather plants from sidewalks, urban areas, and roadsides, employing a sawing machine to fashion my distinctive bags. Yoav, an industrial designer who studied at Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem, dedicated numerous years to honing his skills in plastic product design. However, he made a remarkable transition from computer-based work to the creation of exquisite, one-of-a-kind wooden objects. As for myself, I am a self-taught bag designer, having been perfecting my craft since 2007. After spending years working behind a computer and managing websites, I made the conscious decision to channel my energy into making each bag increasingly unique. Additionally, I am also involved in the field of art therapy, utilizing my skills to assist others in their personal journeys.
Emotional therapy through art combines cognitive and emotional processes, offering a precise and focused approach to address a range of emotional and psychological challenges that can be difficult to navigate. It is particularly beneficial in situations characterized by feelings of stagnation, addictions, anxieties, mood disorders, dissatisfaction, career transitions, financial concerns, lack of achievement, relationship difficulties, finding a partner, family relationship issues, social struggles, and more.
During the therapy sessions, various art forms such as painting, sculpting, and collage are utilized, without requiring the patient to possess any artistic expertise. The process unfolds naturally, guided by targeted questions that encourage the patient to express their emotions on the page. Together, we examine and analyze the created artwork, using further targeted questions to gain valuable insights.
By using painting as a medium, patients can tap into their subconscious and unlock unexpected questions and answers. These discoveries, which hold significance, are taken home, contemplated, explored, internalized, and ultimately foster transformative change. The therapeutic journey extends beyond the session itself, encompassing the ongoing integration of insights into daily life.
Over the course of several sessions, tangible results gradually emerge. Together, we work towards relaxation, coping strategies, understanding, self-discovery, harnessing personal strengths, cultivating gratitude, fostering self-acceptance, and effecting positive changes that contribute to overall well-being.

Taking a glance around and perceiving the beauty in the everyday... In William Carlos Williams' poem "The Red Wheelbarrow," a scene is depicted, somewhat reminiscent of a Haiku, featuring a yard, white chickens, and a red wheelbarrow. The simplicity of the poem and its description of a mundane moment resonates with my feelings when I wander along the back roads. Seasonal plants, ones we usually overlook, are revealed naturally. I find so much beauty in them and utilize them in my paintings on the white cotton.

"So much depends upon
a red wheelbarrow
glazed with rainwater
beside the white chickens."
