She was raised in Seattle, made aliyah in 1981 and is a lifelong versatile artist and teacher, including teaching art in the Israeli school system. Together they collaborate under their combined signature of Bezalel-Levy. Many of their paintings have been commissioned or purchased for public venues and they have exhibited in several countries.
