Miriam was born in Holland in 1960, a country of soft
light and little sunshine. At the age of 22, she studied
for 4 years at the Royal Academy of Art. None of this prepared
her for the magnificent, bright, white light of Israel.
Gone were the greys of my homeland. Here she was inspired
to open her palette to the symphony of joyous colors you
see in her paintings now.
She is home and her paintings reflect this, some with biblical
characters like Sarah, Rachel; others independentof biblical
referends. But always beautifull, inviting, evolving, serene
yet becoming. Often, the main figurein my paintings is gracefully
enfolded within a kind of seed pod, we cannot be certainif
he or she is aware of this.It does not matter. We know it!.
The world of these paintings is that of birth, rebirth,
potentiasl....always potential, like the seed that can always
be touched by the wind and burst open for a flower or a
tree to emerge miraculously. Welcome to her worlds of beauty.
It will surround you with the serenity, simplicity,complexity
,and colors, images and designs dancing around the figure
even through to the frame, which leads you into your own
world of beauty, peacefulness ,and joy. When you take it
home, sit and relax with it.You will see so much more that
will touch your heart and that you will enjoy.
