Bright, joyous and meaningful Jewish art that tells our stories.
Light and joy in life, and in G-d, have always been central themes of Hassidic tradition. This is the feeling I try to convey in my Jewish art. I love the bright light and colours of the Land of Israel, infused with a powerful spiritual energy, and hope this is evoked in my work.
My artistic aim.
My aim is to present a contemporary and modern approach to traditional themes in Judaica art. I am concerned to create Jewish- and Bible-themed art that is accessible, clear and engaging. This is not abstract art or art which challenges conceptual boundaries. Rather, it is a decorative, simple and naive art, open to all and without pretensions.
Apart from the spiritual essence of the Old Testament narratives, I also hope that the you may find an uplifting quality in the vibrancy of the colours, the character of the composition, the emotional tone set by the figures, and the live, tactile quality of brushwork in the original paintings.
Born in England in ’63, and living in Israel since ’93, I’ve been an artist and illustrator for as long as I can remember. I’ve always been drawing, painting or making something. Although formally trained in architecture, my home is in art, in story, and in the place where the two meet. I alternate between oils and acrylic paint. Acrylic gives speed, and a lighter feel to the process, while oil engenders a slower, deeper, and more contemplative approach.
My original modern Jewish artworks make wonderful gifts for the most special people in your life. Consider an original work of Judaica art as a Jewish wedding gift, engagement present, Bar Mitzvah gift or Bat Mitzvah gift.
