It is my honor to have created work for synagogues, JCC's, JCRC's, Jewish Federations, Jewish preschools, and even universities in the United States and Israel. Working with my wonderful clients, whether individuals or institutions, is why I love what I do! 

Whether you know exactly what you want for your art, or you just have a special occasion you want to immortalize and have no idea where to start, I'll be here to guide you every step of the way - just think of me as your Art Spirit Guide ;). I promise, even if you can't draw a stick figure, I am here to help you brainstorm your ideas. I promise I'll get them out of you.  Let your vision be my inspiration! 

A Painting for Reichman University, Hertzliya, Israel

I am so proud to have been commissioned by Reichman University (formerly known as IDC Hertzliya) to create a painting based on the large tree which has become a landmark on their beautiful campus. You can see how the concept and art came together on my blog

Celebrate life's most precious moments in a truly extraordinary way by commissioning a bespoke painting for your special occasion. Imagine the joy and surprise on your loved one's face as they unwrap a gift that embodies the depth of your emotions and the significance of the milestone being honored.

A Retirement Gift for the Ages

A commissioned painting is a timeless treasure that captures the essence of the occasion, etching it forever in the hearts and minds of all who behold it. Take, for instance, this painting that sisters Jessica and Melissa commissioned for their dad on the occasion of his retirement and a big birthday. He had just stepped down from being the president of his synagogue, the very synagogue where he became a Bar Mitzvah decades before. They commissioned a portrait of him that included him as a young Bar Mitzvah boy, as well as today, standing in front of the beloved synagogue which was his home away from home for his entire life. 

A 50th Birthday Gift for a Beloved Husband

Whether it's a vibrant landscape to commemorate a housewarming, a heartfelt portrait to mark an anniversary, or a whimsical creation to light up a birthday, a custom painting offers a personal touch that transcends ordinary presents. It becomes a cherished symbol of love, happiness, and shared memories, radiating warmth and beauty within any living space.

Olga was looking for a unique gift for her husband, a man of many hobbies and passions. She decided to commission a painting that would be a compilation of his favorite places and things. The final piece included a landscape combining Tehran where was born, with some of their favorite travel destinations such as Iceland, Australia, and Egypt. I even included a still life with a camera, violin, a Santoor, and even sheet music. 

With a commissioned painting, you give the gift of art, a manifestation of your thoughtfulness and creativity that will surely be treasured for years to come.

I ask for a 50% deposit to begin, with the remaining balance due when your painting is complete. Please allow a minimum of 6-8 weeks for custom projects, although during summer months my processing times can be longer. Please check with me if you have a time-sensitive project in mind.
