About Ronny Tabeka


Ronny Tabeka was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel.  An artist with strong Judaic art background, Ronny has also dedicated much of his adult life to teaching children and adults Hebrew, as well as the love of Judaism through language and the arts, helping to create a deep connection to Israel. 

At an early age, Ronny felt the attraction to the brush and canvas and vibrant colors.  He started painting at a young age, in a neighborhood surrounded by artists and galleries.  Ronny made connections to the visual arts and computer graphics through his studies, both in Israel and in the U.S., as well as the field of Communications. During his service in the Israeli Navy, Ronny was commissioned to create large-scale murals at several military bases, and the logo for the Navy ship he served on.

The love of airplanes and the dream of continuing to fly small planes landed Ronny in the U.S. in early 1990, in flight school.  Ronny continued his studies in the field of Graphic Design and worked as a graphic artist for the Discovery Channel/TLC Destination Magazine in 1994.

Since then, Ronny has worked for many years in the Washington, DC area, consulting and designing graphics for business owners.  In addition to working as a Graphic Artist, Ronny continued painting and his artwork has been shown in local synagogues and shows in the DC area, including the ArtSite Guild for Judaic Art and the Embassy of Israel.  In 1995, Ronny was commissioned by Panim: The Institute for Jewish Leadership and Values - to paint a piece that was presented to Judge Abner Mikva, President Clinton’s White House Counsel.  Ronny’s artwork has also been sold abroad, and has been featured in various publications, including the Washington Jewish Week.

Ronny currently paints artwork by commission and devotes as much time as possible to creating colorful, exciting and meaningful works of art.
