    Anne Francoise Ben-Or


Anne Francoise Ben-Or (B/Is '65) 

Peace, security and inner peace are the necessary conditions for self-development and creativity. I want to show those circumstances artistically. In the most accessible way, so that people can identify with that energy, that feeling. For happiness and joy.

Anne Francois Ben-Or

She found great stimulus at the Jerusalem Studio School, with the famous master Israel Hersberg. Vulnerability and harmony are essential drivers for Anne Francoise. The vulnerability that enables people to live together in dignity so much better. The harmony of a world in peace. To show this profound message in her works she ‘snaps’ her subjects in the moments when tenderness of deeper inner experiences radiate in the most magical way. Her perception shows irresistible, again and again the pureness of each wonderful first discovery.
