Selected Works

Nava Abel lives and works in Zichron Yaakov, Israel.

She studied at the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA.
The inspiration for her paintings are her personal world and the people which are close to her; family and friends.
In addition to fine art painting, Nava has been transcribing and illustrating Ketubas and illuminated manuscripts. Her style incorporates Middle-Eastern art and encompasses both traditional and Egalitarian Jewish manuscripts.
Today, Nava works and exhibits her paintings out of her studio in Zichron Ya’akov, Israel. Her murals can be seen in many homes, businesses and historic landmarks around town.
