Artists Illuminated - Visual Haiku

Welcome to 'Artists Illuminated'. A series where we turn the spotlight on our favorite holiday market artists and makers. Today we are featuring Salem Holiday Market maker: Visual Haiku


Ami Fagin has been producing original and reproduction fine art since 1985.

The inspiration for her newest series: Visual Haiku came as a sudden motivation for daily and concise meditations on life, in general.  After a month of this pursuit, it became clear that a new and endearing body of work had emerged.

Ami’s work follows three main branches and she has three web galleries reflecting her large body of artwork.  Her original calling as a manuscript illuminator offers gorgeous wedding illuminations and traditional ketubah on her website:

Her educational work in genocide awareness and prevention in “thinking through art” can be found on her website:

And this newest series most likely will be her daily meditation in life’s twists and turns, comedies and tragedies.  With her mature skills at expression with a brush and paint, she captures the essence of the moment, whatever that moment may portend.

Visit all of Ami’s work on any of these sites and buy some great art, support genocide prevention and celebrate love and marriage with any of Ami’s line of artistic productions.

Look for Visual Haiku at the Salem Holiday Market.
