Having grown up in Israel, the conflict in the Middle East is consistently on Michelle Geft’s mind — and in her heart.

The Malibu resident and artist said she draws inspiration for her abstract acrylic and mixed media paintings from the political strife and turmoil of the region for the better part of the century.

“I tear out a lot of newspaper articles and use a lot of abstracted images,” she said.
