Meet Esther V. Levy

   

Esther Vivien Levy is an accomplished artist of classic oils and pastels, a poet, and a creative soul who was reading and writing incessantly from earliest childhood, from the time her mother bought her a wooden easel at age three and she listened at her grandmother's knee to her Holocaust stories. This story has been inside her for her whole life, seeking expression. She always felt different from other Jewish American girls and American girls in general, growing up in Riverdale, NY with European parents and other greenhorn relatives, and living with beloved grandparents. She has traveled to Prague and to Terezin twice, putting together her legacy and validating her feelings of belonging to a vanished world, so that she could paint--with words--the story of her family's dark history.
