Naava Katz is an artist based in New York, who creates commission-based portraits for families, custom portrait stationery, and licensing for brands and special events.
Hello, I'm Naava.
I am a painter and illustrator who makes emotional and inspiring art about the love of family.
This is what I’m sure of: The connection we have with our children is the deepest love story we'll ever know.
Like so many of you, being a Mommy is an identity I treasure. Raising my children is the most rewarding work I've done. I bet you feel the same. Making art about families is my way of honoring this journey we are all on together.
Drawing people has been my passion since I was a child.
And because everyone always asks: Naava is a Hebrew name and it means lovely.
