Hi, I'm Keren

An independent designer and artist.

My parents were diplomats so growing up we moved a lot from one country to another. I experienced many different cities, different houses, different languages, different friends.

I took to drawing early, I guess amidst the constant changes, that was one thing I could take and keep with me. It was a universal language that could be spoken with anybody that could see without the discomfort of a language barrier. It also helped break the ice with new friends. So as soon as I could hold a pencil I've kept it close and it's been my best friend ever since.

I'm an animal lover and nature is one of my biggest inspirations. I guess language (or lack of) plays a part here too. You don't need to speak 'cat', 'dog' or 'bird' to interact with a cat a dog or a bird :).

I'm a fan of the freaks, of the strange and bizarre. I'm a collector and keeper of memories and objects. I have an affection to the relationship between man and beast. I love taxidermy, curiosity cabinets, natural history museums. I'm an avid reader and cinema goer. I'm intrigued by death and love life.

So what is pieceofka? (pees-of-kah) n.: a piece by or pertaining to the art and inspiration of Keren Asaf 

Pieceofka, in a nutshell, is a place for my world of inspiration. It's where my art has a home, its where my inspirations take form as jewelry now but maybe something else later. I am happy to share my work with you.

Feel free to contact me or say hi. Welcome to my world, enjoy!
