From her birth until her fifteenth birthday Zoya lived in Kiev, USSR, and while living there she was taking art classes, so she developed artistic skills. Then she left for Israel and continued taking art classes there. Then, some years after, she decided to put her memories onto paper. She used her art skills to draw all her childhood memories – all as she remembered them before she left the USSR. Her works are a true time machine for all people who remember USSR and grew up there during that time.
