Artist statement

My name is Maya Rosenberg and art has always been a significant part of my life. For me art is a breath, a way of communication and the heart of life. My main medium nowadays is acrylics. Nature and especially the beautiful landscapes of Canada are a huge source of inspiration for me, and I try to bring through art the peaceful, relaxing and recharging qualities it has. Art is an international language, and no matter which country I was living at, it has always been a great way to express myself, communicate, engage with our communities, inspire and empower people. It can translate clearly and visualize our stories and aspirations. The way I see it, art has a main part in our society as it can bridge above culture differences through sharing a passion for a visual language. It brings so many colours into our life, in and out.

Artist Biography

I was Born and raised in Israel, and have traveled to the United States, Canada and Europe including France, Switzerland, Romania and Italy. I was accepted to SVA the School of visual arts in New York at the Fine Arts bachelors honours program. I have also spent time living in New York and was lucky to be a part of some inspiring art communities such as the international circus project in Brooklyn called "The Muse".

I  moved to Whitehorse in August 2014 and am currently a board director at the Yukon Art Society, teaching painting workshops across the Yukon Territory and exhibiting in varied art galleries across Canada (Whitehorse and Winnipeg).

My art is inspired by nature and wilderness, and its rejuvenating, dynamic and vivid qualities. My work reflects the connections of art, love and nature, through colours, and the effect it has to empower us and our communities through colours.
