Bat Mitzvah Parasha Original Artwork by Mickie Caspi
Bat Mitzvah Parasha Original Artwork by Mickie Caspi
In 1990, Mickie created a work of art as a birthday gift for her mother. To honor her mom, Mickie incorporated Thelma’s original Parasha (Vayeshev) in a setting filled with bold, reddish-pinkish flowers on a luxurious blue background. Thelma was an artist in her own right, creating huge canvases filled with bright colors, shapes and images. She was a woman ahead of her time, graduating from the Illinois Institute of Technology at a time when it was rare for women to aspire to such degrees. She worked as an architect and city planner, and was a devotee of Frank Lloyd Wright. She helped to design the house that Mickie grew up in – a house filled with art supplies and creativity. She helped inspire the spark in Mickie that has led to a life filled with art.
