Focus on Folk Artist Malcah Zeldis



Glass, Linzi. (2006). The Year the Gypsies Came. NewYork:  Henry Holt. (South Africa during the 1960s).
American folk artist, Malcah Zeldis,  is a painter whose works have been used to illustrate several children's books. Her work often focuses on social, political, and religious themes, as well as scenes from New York City.
"For many years I secretly wanted to paint and become an artist, but I was afraid to study art because I felt I had no talent. It was only when my children were grown and away from the house and I found myself with time on my hands that I dared to begin to paint without expecting anyone else to like or approve of what I was doing. When I finally showed my work to art critics and connoisseurs, I was amazed by how eagerly it was accepted." - M. Zeldis (As quoted from here.)
