They are at once modern and ancient, organic and synthetic; A balance of G-D, music, love, torment, determination, nature, culture, the soul, mind and spirit. They are mystical and prophetic, based on her personal dreams, visions, struggles and self-fullfilled prophecies. There are elements of Symbolic Art, Abstract Art, Classical Greek Art, Roman Art, French Impressionism & Expressionism all mixed with the Figurative in a whimsical, childlike furor of emotion.

REVIEW
"Shirley Levi's paintings transcend the material which she uses to create them and become a completely new medium, which seems to be made of light, spirit and unearthly power. I have never seen an artist create something of such pure magic in my life. Every painting I have ever seen in person, whether it be a Picasso or a Dali, has always remained a painting...But Shirley Levi's work becomes something more to me. Her painting of a heart, for example, stops being a painting of a heart and takes on all the characteristics of an actual working, beating organism. There is life in her work which you can feel moving and breathing and becoming real. I honestly think that her work is pure genius and would give everything to own them all. If you have the opportunity to purchase an original from her, you should do it soon because once word gets out on how truly amazing she is, you won't be able to afford to own her masterpieces."

"I asked Anne Marie to sketch the white dove since she specializes in animal sketches. This painting symbolizes music from G-d which replenishes itself through my spirit and heart. I thought it would be very special to have Anne Marie guest star in this specific painting since she is pure with her intentions and creations like myself. We are both artists. The dove is a symbol for both of us. I wanted to motivate her to believe in her creations and to see it manifested into a beautiful reality." ~ Shirley Levi
