About the artist
Art is my passion and beloved vehicle of self expression.
I see beauty wherever I look and it is truly fulfilling to be able to express my deep love for Judaism, the Jewish People and the Land of Israel through my work.
Being able to “see” both visually and spiritually is a gift which I treasure and which gives deep meaning to my life.
I trained in graphic design and have a BA Fine Art Honors degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa.
I have worked as a professional artist for 20 years and have exhibited widely in South Africa. My work is held in many private collections both locally and internationally.
I work in many different media including oil paint, watercolour, ink, pastel, charcoal, pencil and acrylic.
My style is constantly changing as one body of work evolves into the next.
I adore writing and have written three children’s books and illustrated two of them.
I run an art school for adults and children and teach daily..
For more information about art classes, call Loren at 082 7738623.
I live in Johannesburg with my husband and children. The vibrant, committed and unified South African Jewish community is a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.
