Biography

Tsarfati was born in Haifa, Israel in 1986. She graduated from the Visual Communication department at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2011. Her artistic style was influenced by studying with Jerusalem, Merav Salomon and Michal Bonano.[1] After graduating with distinction from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, she held several positions as a designer and illustrator in one of Israel’s leading branding studios.[2]

Tsarfati's debut as an author and illustrator came with 'The Neighbors', which was published by Abrams Books in 2019. The book was translated and published in 18 countries worldwide.[3]

Tsarfati lives in Tel Aviv.

Published works

Children's books

The first children's book both written and illustrated by Tsarfati, 'The Neighbors' released in 2019 under the Abrams Books for Young Readers imprint. The story follows a young girl who climbs the seven stories to her apartment and imagines what’s behind each of the doors she passes. A review by the The New York Times hailed the book for "balanc[ing] visual extravagance with sneaky insight into how kids think of home".[4]

Tsarfati is also the author and illustrator of two other children books: 'Sandcastle', which was published in 2020 by Candlewick Press, and 'It Could Be Worse', which was published in 2021 under the same imprint. Tsarfati's books have received positive reviews by American book review magazine Kirkus Reviews.[5][6]
