|Inspired by the family traditions and folklore of her Eastern
European heritage, Ilene Winn-Lederer has created a unique
visual language that is a voice for her mind's eye. Through her thoughtful, intricate
interpretations of Torah, Midrash and Hebrew legend, she bridges the mundane and mystical
theaters of Jewish experience; weaving her dreams, memories and spiritual journeys into a
tapestry of icons which are universal yet personal. Her works are included in public and
private collections throughout the United States, Europe and Israel.
