Chaia Heller’s art is a meditation on exhaltation and joy. She creates art that is prayerful, playful, feminist, and Earth-aware. Chaia’s art is inspired by the poetry of the natural world in all its shining complexity and diversity. Her work is a celebration of color, whether she is depicting whimsical trees of life, or expanding upon the idea and meaning of the Eshet Chayil, or Woman of Valor. Her paintings draw from folk imagery, Illuminated Manuscripts, and a rich grammar of symbols to depict Jewish realities past, present, and unabashedly imagined.
