Netta Ganor was born in Jerusalem on 28 October 1979. After attending elementary school, high school and College of Management she gained a Bachelor's degree in computer science in 2001 before going on to complete a Master's Degree and a doctoral thesis in Business Administration & Information Systems. She works at a hi-tech company, has been married since 2009 and is a mother. On 25 November 1994, her life was turned completely upside down. She was a "geek" high school student who practised athletics and enjoyed making art craft, when she contracted “Transverse Myelitis” - a rare syndrome which inflated her spinal cord and left her paralysed from the shoulders down, dependent on a ventilator. After she had recovered sufficiently to come off the ventilator, during rehabilitation, Netta met a mouth and foot painter and decided to give the painting a try.
