This painting is based off of a photo at a beach in Netanya in Israel on a family holiday there a few years ago. As a Jew, and Israel being my homeland, I created this painting to bring a piece of Israel into my home in London. It reminds me that wherever I am in the world, Israel is still a huge part of my life and inspires me to embrace my Judaism every day. My whole community is spread out over the world and now more than ever it's important to reach out to your family and friends overseas and remind them that we are all in this together - as one body, as one family.
