About the Artist

Hava Gurevich was born in Russia and spent part of her childhood in Israel before moving with her family to Ann Arbor, Michigan. She received her B.F.A. in photography from the University of Michigan in 1990 and her M.F.A. in painting from the Illinois State University in 1998.
Professionally she has worked in the arts for more than twenty years as a photographer, educator, art dealer, web designer, and art curator. Her intellectual and artistic curiosity is matched by her passion for travel, having lived in Milan, San Francisco, Chicago, Calgary and New York City as well as a few small towns.
