There is Life after Retirement 

Toni Herscovici retired in 2002. Until than she worked as a pediatrician in Dimona and Be'er-Sheva, raised a family and only doodles on pages in her medical diary remembered her love for drawing. Retirement enabled Toni to realize a dream. She studied art in various art schools in Be'er-Sheva, with different artists. "From every teacher I chose something that suited me – technique, attitude, a way of looking at an object and so on".

 Staring on her canvases are images of Be'er-Sheva, the capitol of the Negev, Israel – people, urban life, scenery. She also paints scenery from all over Israel. But mountains, rocks and sea are not enough for Toni – in many of her paintings images of people or animals stand-out. The near and distant history of the Jewish people, famous events depicted in literature and photography become in the hands of the artist a near, nearly event personal, for her. 

One can see that Toni Herscovici loves every person' animal, every leaf and flower appearing on her canvas, be it a flowering tree far up the side of a mountain in the Golan; or a bunch of grapes, where every single grapes receives the same loving attention; as the hand of a little boy, extended to a butterfly… Her work is meticulous but the overall look is of an impressionistic work of art, of a fleeting, complacent, very private moment of the artist. 

Toni's paintings offer the viewer a taste of achievable happiness. 

Toni Herscovici is a member of the Israeli association of artists. She has had a number of solo exhibitions and has taken part in many group shows in Be'er-Sheva, Tel-Aviv, Haifa, Safad and overseas. She has won a number of awards and her paintings are displayed in public institutions in Be'er-Sheva.
