Adi Salzberg is an Associate Professor at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, where she studies PNS development in Drosophila.

She writes: “The subjects of my realistic oil paintings are usually very personal and are connected to my emotional world. All the portraits depict beloved characters (2 and 4 legged alike), who are very significant to me. I paint from observation, either directly or by means of photographs. The compositions often combine realistic and imaginary scenes.”
