Born and raised in Israel, Azoulay moved to the United States in 2002, and studied photography at the Community College of Philadelphia. Later, she returned to Israel to study Fine Arts and Art Education at the HaMidrasha School of Art, and graduated in 2010 with a BFA.Ed.

<p>My work takes many medial forms. The common thread that passes through them all is laboriousness. The repetitive Sisyphean aspect acts as a ritual of sort, without the possibility for absolution.</p> <p>Often, while beginning a new piece I am driven by the need to be in an uncomfortable situation where I might lose control. Other times the end result might seem to have a pleasant aesthetics, while beneath the surface the works deal with disturbing subject matters. This produces a certain tension between form and idea which allows me to be both &quot;normal&quot; and perverse, feminine and masculine, perfect and broken, all at the same time.</p>
