About the Artist

Michelle Levy Brocco (also known in Israel as Michelle Baruch) grew up in a small and quiet suburb in New Jersey, USA. The beauty of the surrounding nature sparked her interest in the environment.

Later she completed a Bachelor's degree in Earth Sciences and her Master's degree in Environmental Science and Policy from The Johns Hopkins University. Some of her research focused on the Joint Management of Water Resources in the Middle East. She also completed a 1 year certificate program from the Rutgers University in Geoinformatics (GIS). She recently completed her studies to be a certified Israeli tour guide with the Israeli Ministry of Tourism.

Michelle is married and has 4 children and is currently living in the suburbs of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people. The amazing beauty and richness of Israel's natural surroundings has led her to attempt to capture some of it on film. These pictures are the result, but cannot do justice to G-d's creation. I hope you will enjoy my pictures.
