Reverse Painted, Functional Art
Made with a Jewish Flair
Living Art by Leah is hand-painted, functional, Judaic art
created out of a desire to honor the beautiful traditions of the Jewish people.
About the Artist:
Born in Brooklyn, New York, the artist has roots in two distinct Jewish cultures as the daughter of first generation Americans whose families immigrated from Russia on her father's side and Turkey on her mother's. As a child, she enjoyed the unique opportunity of experiencing old world Sephardi and Ashkenazi customs first hand in her grandparents and great-grandparents homes. This early history gave the artist a great longing to share her cultural roots with her own family and friends and has of late led her to create unique pieces of art to enhance the rituals of both cultures.
As a former teacher of children and adults, Leah is proud to use her knowledge and life experience to add to the vast richness of our beloved Jewish culture and traditions. It is her hope that her work will inspire others to reach back and bring their own histories into the present, fostering the Jewish mandate of l'dor va dor.
