About Kati

Kati Paldi was born in Hungary and is living and creating in Haifa, Israel.

She survived the Holocaust as teenager but lost major part of her family including her mother and two of her younger brothers.

After the war she married Eitan (Totzi) Paldi, a medical student, and on September 1948 they made "Aliya".

For many years she was busy raising her two children and only by her forties she began studying art and sculpturing.
She studied in the Faculty of Art in the Haifa University and in the Art Student League in New York and gathered experience in practical studies in a marble workshop in Carrara, Italy.

 

She is the winner of the "Herman Struck" Prize for her work "Duet" (2004) and presented her sculptures in many exhibitions in Israel and abroad.

She sculpts in marble, stone, wood, terra cotta and other materials and she casts in bronze.
 

Her sculptures are displayed in Public Buildings and Galleries and are held by many private Collectors.
