This puzzle features original artwork by Hodaya Louis, a third-generation interdisciplinary artist whose paintings and drawings manifest her personal landscape, often including private moments in the lives of women. Her expressive brushstrokes evoke the tensions and intricacies that exist between hard and soft, the ephemeral and eternal. Born in Israel to an Afghan mother and American father, she has always been drawn to the tensions and intricacies that exist between Eastern and Western Jewish culture. She is strongly influenced by her Orthodox upbringing, multi-cultural background, music, and training in fashion design.
