Hava Sebbag currently lives in London with her husband and children. She was born in France in a small town named Colmar. As a young child she was constantly fascinated by her surroundings and her observational and eye for detail was remarked upon from an early age. Her talent was quick to express itself, as a young girl she drew brilliant sketches of her surroundings, far from being shallow externals what she drew and painted was always to draw out a poignant element which made a powerful impression on her and thus conveyed a meaningfulness and depth to her paintings.

She soon moved to London where her reputation continues to succeed her, and still today teaches hundreds of keen students, while simultaneously expanding her style with experience.

However, where her true genius lies is in creating a look and a mood affecting an overwhelming impression of who she has painted, the character and depth of human quality alive, the eyes intense with emotion and spirituality producing an effect one can only marvel at...
