Hotel Art, Yoga Studios and Events

Benjamin has created six-foot acrylic on canvas and mixed media hotel art that combine the Jodhpur style of Indian painting with flora and fauna local to the hotel’s area. Her style and background also align very well with the multicultural teachings of yoga. For instance, she had depicted yogic symbols and figures for yoga studios. Event planners work with her to craft unique private commissions, including seasonally-themed canvas paintings for private parties.

Sacred Space Art

With firsthand cultural and religious influences that span the globe, Benjamin is uniquely qualified to create sacred space art. She grew up influenced by Judaism, Christianity, Zoroastrianism, Islam and Hinduism, leading to universal religious and cultural themes that embody her work. She has created a 16-foot diameter porcelain floor design, unique Torah Ark paint designs, and Ketubahs (Jewish illuminated marriage contracts) made with gouache and mixed media on paper.

Private Commissions

Benjamin has taken a variety of other private commissions that can be discussed during the planning process. Private home art commissions have ranged from a 24” x 56” gouache and acrylic painting on a wood panel with multicultural inspirations to paintings on drums of blue-skinned figures and multicultural elements.
