Simkha Shields

Oil paintings, Prints, Drawings, beadwork My art reflects my two loves...the words and imagery of the Hebrew bible and the beauty and grace of our natural world. The paintings and the Hebrew passages that many contain are drawn from my life long love of Judaism and the Hebrew language. These pieces depict the colors and textures of the ancient landscapes of the land of Israel. I also paint my memories of the many years I spent sailing along our northern coast aboard the schooner Adventurist and exploring by kayak the northern shores and surrounding waters of Vancouver Island and adjacent islands where sea and land is filled with abounding life. What I have seen and experienced, what I have read and learned, what I have experienced in my adventures, all comprise the palette from which my paintings emerge.
