Renata Lefel is an upcoming Israeli artist, who entered the world of art in a rather unusual way. 

Have you ever dreamed of leaving your old life behind and start anew as an artist in Europe? Because that is exactly what Lefel has done. To Israelife she says: “I was living in Israel and working as a high-tech programmer for a decade, until about four years ago I decided to leave everything and study painting in Rome. I made a lifelong dream come true when I entered the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome and spent four years there.”


A month ago, Lefel returned to Tel-Aviv, where she is now building herself as an artist. “Art is not a profession or an occupation, it is a way of life. I decided to fulfil my life desire and succeeded in doing that.” Lefel has been presenting her artwork in group exhibitions in Rome.
