Chaya’s colorful paintings and artwork reflect her Greek heritage, with its focus on complex designs in the delicate handwork of her ancestors. Her mixed media pieces tell a story, inviting the viewer to pause and enter her world of abstract realism. Combining the stimulation and camaraderie of small artist groups, with time in her studio, Chaya invites the creative spirit to flow freely through her.
These works explore the artist’s sense of wonder at the inherent beauty found in the natural world.
