Ya'ara has shown in numerous exhibitions in museums and galleries, in solo and group exhibitions and art fairs. She has lived in Toronto since 2003 with her family and a variable number of cats.
As an illustrator most of the time the beginning of a work comes from a written or spoken word, to which are added everything that surrounds me, from the changing nature during the year And the city around me, information flowing through the different media, childhood memories and private associations. All this is condensed and concentrated and comes out of the edge of the brush in watercolour and ink.
